It might be that the flowers are not being pollinated. Bees and wasps generally carry out the process of transferring pollen but if there is little or no bee activity, the flowers begin to develop fruit but the fruit will drop because the flower was not pollinated. You might try planting colorful annuals or perennials near your pomegranite, just to encourage insect activity around the shrub. Hope this helps!
