Q.Meyer lemon tree

Zone 77546 | tnjdill@yahoo.com added on February 21, 2018 | Answered

Last year our tree had small and hard fruit. We got no usable fruit. Two years before we had probably 100 or more, next year was just a few, then last year they were 20-30 but none were usable.

This sounds like a case of phosphorus and potassium deficiencies. You can correct this by using a fertilizer that is specific to citrus to take out the guesswork. Use this once per year in spring. This will correct the issue.
