Q.meyer lemon tree

Zone bakersfield, ca | Kym Rampton added on November 3, 2014 | Answered

I live in Bakersfield, Ca. I was wondering if it is normal for my lemon tree to hold to its fruit for so long. It started flowering in early last spring, and it’s gone all spring into summer, now fall, and the lemons are just now turning yellow. Grant it, they are the size of large oranges/small grapefruit & I have to reinforce the limbs to keep them from breaking. Those lemons haven’t ripened completely and now my tree is flowering again. The way it’s going my daughter is going to have a lemonade stand at Christmas. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
