Should I Prop Up Limbs on Meyer Lemon Tree So Fruit Doesn’t Touch Ground?

Should I prop up limbs on the Meyer lemon tree so the fruit does not touch the ground? The tree is about 6 years old, but is just now coming back from a freeze 4 years ago. There are a lot of lemons about baseball size. The tree is almost 5 feet tall. So, should I prop the limbs up so the fruit does not touch the grass?

Yes, if you're wanting to get those fruits to ripen, you can prop up the limbs. After the fruit is done, though, you might want to prune those branches back a bit. This article has more information:
