I live in zone 7, Albuquerque, NM and I say water. Its been so dry here that
I've been watering at least ever other week  or every week if the
temperatures are getting into the 60's in the day or if its windy.

Stick your finger in the dirt and if there isn't any moisture, water. I
haven't had any rot yet on anyone including the arils.

Thats my two cents worth. Sharon what do you think?
