Answer: Some varieties of pomegranate set fruit, but most don't. Pomegranate is Punica granatum. All have showy flowers, tolerate alkaline soil, and much heat. 'Chico' has double orange-red flowers over a long season, but doesn't set fruit. 'Legrellei' has double creamy flowers heavily striped with coral red, but no fruit. 'Wonderful' is the best known fruiting pomegranate. It bears orange-red single flowers up to 4 inches across, and develops fruit if given ample, deep watering in the spring and summer months. If your's is a fruiting variety, try giving lots of water after flowering. If yours is an ornamental variety, enjoy those double blossoms!
