My tree has a lime already growing, but it keeps dropping all the newly formed fruit. Your article says to fertilize it. Which fertilizer is better?

It can be normal for some flowers or fruit to drop.
Make sure you are providing adequate sunlight and even watering.
Use a fertilizer that is specific to Citrus. Follow the packaging directions for application.
