Lack of Limes on Lime Tree

Anonymous added on September 20, 2011 | Answered

My lime tree produces many flowers and as a result, small fruit is produced, but they all drop off fairly quickly. Hence, I get no limes! Is there some product that I can put on the little limes to help them stay on the tree?

It is normal for limes to drop their "pea size" fruits just after flowering in spring. They may also drop them again in summer due to the warmer temps. Excessive dropping could be attributed to stress.
