Fruit is dry with no juice. It has blossoms on it now. Are we pulling it too late?

Maybe due to late harvest, but I suspect that the tree is underwatered. Citrus like deep flood irrigation especially when forming fruit; try to achieve 10 or 12 inches of penetration.

Fertilize spring and fall with a complete organic citrus fertilizer.
