Default Pomegranate

My 3 year old Pommy bush has held on to some fruit this year, well 4 to be exact.
I picked one about a month ago, looked fine, but seeds inside were white.
Picked another today, and similar result see image......anyone else have a pommy bush, if so when are the seeds likely to turn full red?? How do you know?

So you think its simply a question of leaving the remainder for a month?

The fruit gets boxy when it's ripe...... rather than being round, you will see where the internal separations harden off and push against the skin.

Yours looks quite pale too, mine go deep red and even black in places.

Hi
Yes this particular fruit was boxy, thats the one thing I did read about them.
But yes 90% of the seeds are white, a few seem to be turning red, but thats it. I have no idea if these suddenly go from white to red, but I doubt it. Thats why I wondered if maybe this was a variety with white cells or just an immature bush that cant make it to full red
I have tasted some of the seeds and they are sweet, but not so good on the eye !!!
Guess I will leave for a month and see what the next one brings.

Yes... and pray they don't split! Admittedly, we seem to have less splitting as each year goes by.

Most of ours split this year - the charnecos had a field day (or several)

With the long period without rain and temeratures in the 40s, I'm amazed any fruit manages to remain..... but there are still a dozen or more that we hope will last through Christmas.


This one was the last from one tree - 850g..... you wouldn'y want to buy by the kilo!

Ours are also enormous. I swear they are getting bigger by the year. They were doing fine until the rain in September (ours don't get watered) but then the rain cam along and the splitting started.
