Q.Lime Tree (1/8 Citrus)

Anonymous added on February 17, 2011 | Answered

I moved in a house recently that had so much overgrowth. During the clean up, I found a lime tree. A couple of weeks ago, I realized it had tons of large limes I did not notice. When I cut them open, most of it was a white layer and only 1/8 of it was actually citrus (not even useable). Is there some remedy to fix this? Maybe needs to be fertilized, ex-owner never did.

Thick skin normally indicates too much nitrogen. I would add a phosphorous rich fertilizer to balance this out.
