Meyer lemons take about six months from blossom to ripened fruit. That is actually quick for a citrus, some of which can take over 12 months. I am not sure whether the process can be sped up, but it's possible that providing more light would help. Also, very young trees may not be able to fully ripen their fruit, so they may stay green or fall off.
