dwarf bearss Lime trees in large pots

Zone 6 | ncpaul added on May 16, 2015 | Answered

I have 2 dwarf Bearss lime trees, had them 3 years. They have lots of green leaves but fruit forms and quickly drops and I fertilized a few weeks ago, no change. It's on a sunny deck and gets watered daily. I have no idea what to do to make them fruit. Any suggestions?

Lime trees are heavy feeders and do need regular fertilizer.
Proper light, watering, and temperatures are all needed to promote fruit growth.
