Patio Meyer lemon tree

Zone 7B | Diane724 added on December 11, 2017 | Answered

Hi, My tree has very young fruit on it. Weather went below freezing. Did it hurt the fruit? Should I remove them or just leave it alone. I need to repot it too. Since the fruit is so young can I do it now. Thanks, Diane

Freezing temperatures will, definitely, hurt the fruit. If you can bring it indoors during this time then you will not have to pluck the fruit. If this is not possible, then the fruit will drop naturally if they are harmed to the point of death.
