Why dont Pomegranates grown from seed seem to fruit?
This really doesnt make sense if you think about it. If the seeds dropped from a pomegranate fruit dont end up producing new plants that produce fruit themselves, then pomegranates shouldve been an evolutionary dead end that went extinct millions of years ago.
How else would they have reproduced and spread if their seeds dont grow new plants that will themselves grow fruit with their own seeds?
So anyway, I wasnt aware of this phenomenon 6 years ago when I decided to try and grow a pomegranate from seed I spit out after eating a pomegranate I bought at the grocery store.
That plant is now 6 years old, but doesnt fruit.
Why? Can anything be done to stat it fruiting, and why dont these seeds produce plants that grow fruit?
