Where can I find a good pomegranate tree with big juicy and sweet fruits? The one I have drops most of the flowers in spring and the fruits are small and very sour. Thanks.
Blossom drop can happen for a few reasons. The most common is too little water. Another reason could be poor pollination and then poor fertilization of the soil could also cause problems with the flowers.
Why do my pomegranates split open before they get ripe?
Oftentimes this is caused by uneven watering. This can happen when you have long periods of dry conditions followed by a big rainfall, or an abundance of water. The plant is so thirsty that it sucks up water faster than it can grow and the fruit splits. To avoid this, make sure to water evenly and often.
I wish to know the minimum necessary conditions for the pomegranate.
The tree cannot take temps below 12º F (-11.11º C). This article should help with additional growing info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/pomegranate/growing-pomegranate-tree-seeds.htm
In the spring my large, old pomegranate bush had scores of blossoms. Now I have only 5 or 6 fruits. What happened? In other years, I've had a lot of fruit. We didn't have a freeze.

I have 3 large WONDERFUL Pomegranate trees. Is September the month to stop the watering?
Most fruit trees are watered well into mid-October.
Key word in your sentence is MOST....What specifically is the halt to watering WONDERFUL pomegranite trees in the Vegas Valley of Nevada?

My pomegranate tree is 4 yrs old. Great fruit until this past year. The kernals are shaded from clear to darker pink. None of the fruit had dark red kernals when ripe. My mother, 1 mile away, has had the same problem for years, but her trees lack attention.
I have not heard of this happening. My initial reaction would be that it was weather changes or a change in radiation from the sun, but that would not explain why your mother's tree is like that. Did you get your seeds from her? It could be a genetic problem. Good Luck and Happy Growing!
Sorry, but I can't find an answer to your question. UC Davis has a pomegranate program. They may be able to give you the answer. Good luck.
