Q.Should I remove the stems from the miniature Calamondin tree after picking the fruit

Zone 35146 | Anonymous added on March 16, 2020 | Answered

I bought 2 trees at Lowe’s a year ago that already had a little fruit on them. A month or so later they bloomed all over and I had a bumper crop from both trees. I just finished removing a few Calimondin fruit from the trees and where the fruit was attached to its stem is just sitting there. Should I clip them off the trees or what. The trees look pitiful with no fruit on them. Where will the tree bloom from? The old stems or will they grow new stems then flower?
Thank you so very much!

I would leave them when you harvest. In the spring, prune the long branches back just below a node to prevent legginess.
