Lemon Fruit

Our lemon tree just blossomed and appears to have small fruit about 3/8 in. long. Now they are falling off. Is this actual fruit? Will we have lemons?

Citrus trees love lots of fertilizer and water, especially when they are fruiting. Give them a deep watering at least once a week, otherwise they may drop their fruit or produce fruit that is dry inside or too small. In addition, if there are lots of lemons on the tree, you may want to pull some to allow the others to grow larger.
