Lemons Losing Color

Anonymous added on December 1, 2011 | Answered

My lemon tree is starting to get lemons but they are starting to turn black. Can you tell me what to do? They have the white flowers, which are starting to blossom, but the young lemons do not look good.

If you are seeing blossoms but you get no fruit or it doesn't develop, this is a pollination problem. You can hand pollinate with a small paintbrush. Just go from flower to flower and swirl the brush inside the blossoms.
