My tree is new and tiny and getting so many lemons I know it can't support them all. How many should I allow to mature?
Too Many Lemons on Tree
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
Your lemon tree will go through a natural thinning process on its own without any intervention on your part. I foresee many of those lemons dropping on their own accord. As your tree matures it will be able to hold onto more fruit on its branches in the future.

As the tree blooms you can take off as many blooms as needed to keep the branches from breaking as the lemons mature. I have had to do this with a peach tree.
