|I live in Las Vegas where it's hotter than blazes in the summer time. I have two pomegranate trees growing along the south end of my home. So the trees get all the sunlight of the day. I have been having problems with the fruit on both of the trees. It seems that most of the pomegranates tend to prematurely develop cracks and "burst" open as a result. On some it's obvious that significant sunlight was a contributing factor. But I'm also thinking that too much of a particular vitamin or nutrient can also cause them to burst. For instance I drink a lot of coffee and so I always throw used coffee grounds into the soil of the trees. Maybe it's too much nitrogen or phosphorus? I'm really not sure. I would greatly appreciate any knowledge or know-how on the problem. Thanks.|

|Bursting fruit is usually blamed on uneven watering.

|From a friend that owns a Pom and almond orchard, prob over fertilization
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

But ? Are they ripe ? Hear.when they start to split there ripe. But not this early. If water or fertilizer is right. Maybe a little shade would help ? Shade cloth or cheese cloth.
