I have 2 pomegranate trees that bore 2 pomes each but they split open before they mature. What do I need to do

Pomegranates can split open if they are overripe or if it's been really rainy for a few days. There's not much you can do to control the rain but you can try harvesting in December (which is their normal ripening time). Wish I had more suggestions to share. I hope you have better luck with your next crop.
