Bearss Lime Tree

ltewes added on December 31, 2016 | Answered

I live near Escondido CA and the Bearss tree is almost 2 yr, about 4 ft. It gets flowers and they become 1/4 inch fruit but soon drop. I feed the tree Miracle Grow citris granular in a 3 ft. basin and deep water monthly except in rainy season. I have a hardy lemon tree getting same treatment and thriving. Occasionally, some leaves look like they have been partially burned. I would appreciate any advice.
