I have a good size pomegranate tree I planted in the ground about 6 years ago. The plant is healthy and bears flowers and tiny fruit which quickly fall off rather than developing into a good size pomegranate. I get fruit later in the year but only a handful. I hear similar complaints from neighbors.

What am I doing wrong? What is the fruiting season in zone 9b?

    So, what is your local pollinator situation? Bees are having a hard time in many places, and as a result, we do too. You can try providing habitat for alternative pollinators (mason bees, etc.) and you can try doing it yourself for the blossoms you can reach... – Ecnerwal Jul 6 '17 at 12:26
