Lemon Trees

Should I Remove Some of Tiny Developing Lemons on My Tree

Merrilyn added on July 19, 2014 | Answered

I have a container growing lemon tree that has had lots of blossoms this year. It now is developing tiny fruit, and some branches have more than several growing. It doesn't seem like the branch would hold that much mature fruit.
