Q.Why Do Pomegranate Fruit Split Open Just Before They Start Ripening

Zone Amman, Jordan | taherasfour added on April 19, 2020 | Answered

I don’t presently have any images to send . The pomegranate season is still about four months away. I’d like to know if there is anything I can do ahead of the fruiting season.

This will usually happen when the tree receives uneven moisture throughout the fruiting season. If it dries out, then suddenly receives watering, this will be the result.

Try keeping the tree evenly moist with only a slight dry out, between watering during the fruiting season.

Sometimes, pathogens can do this, too. The treatment will depend on the culprit.
