Minature Fruit Trees Bloom


Anonymous added on April 25, 2014 | Answered

I have two miniature limes, two lemons and an orange tree. I get buds on them but they don't produce fruits. What am I doing wrong?

If any were grown from seed, they may not be old enough to bear fruit. They generally need 3-6 years to reach fruit bearing maturity. Have you fertilized? Nitrogen encourages leaves to grow, but not fruit. Too much can actually keep a plant from producing fruit. This article has information on how to fertilize your trees: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/fertilizing-citrus-trees-best-practices-for-citrus-fertilizing.htm Lack of fruiting could also be attributed to poor pollination. The requirements for lemons are very similar to that of limes.
