Persian lime tree in a pot

Zone 73439, south central OK about 2 miles from texas border | Kate Brennan added on April 9, 2017 | Answered

Our tree, while inside, climate contoled, in winter, produced large number of flowers which started to turn into fruit. Moved tree outside when temps warmer. Lots of little fruit, lots. Concern: fruit (attachment to tree) is very fragile and winds easily knock them off. We moved tree inside for short period, during rain storm, and the slight giggling from moving it also caused fruit to fall off. Is it normally this fragile or have we neglected to do something or too much of something. I dont over water. Thank you!!

Moving and changing growing conditions is best done in a gradual time period.

When moving from indoor to outdoor find a semi shade sheltered area and start with a few hours at a time.

Your Citrus should be able to acclimate to the outdoor area within a week or two.
Wind or heavy rains can harm the blossoms or fruit; so best to protect the plant from these extremes.
