Q.citrus watering schedule

Zone Sonoran Desert-Wickenburg | hoser52 added on September 1, 2015 | Answered

I live in the desert. Last November I planted a Mexican lime, a Eureka lemon and a Washington Sweet Navel orange. I have an automatic watering system and am watering in the summer for 45 minutes every other day. The soil is quite loamy and it takes a while for the water to seep in to the ground. The orange tree has two oranges (still green) but looking good, the lemon has one lemon (still green). The lime has been growing tall but has no fruit and no blossoms. Should I fertilize? Am I watering too often?

Thank you for your help.
