My well established lemon tree has leaf curl and the fruits have spotted skins.
It sounds like the tree has a pest, maybe scale or aphids. It is hard to say as there are several pests that cause this kind of damage. We recommend treating these kinds pest with neem oil. It is safe for humans and animals but is very effective against most destructive plant pests.
My lemon plant is a foot tall and I had planted it one month ago. It has flowers and one fruit on it. Please guide me on how to care for the lemon plant so that it yields good results. Please list some chemicals and fertilizers too. Thank you.

I have recently bought a lemon tree and did not notice until I got it home that it said the it was not for consum[tion. why is this
I would suspect that the lemon has been treated with a pesticide or another chemical that is not suitable to be eaten. The other possibility is that the fruit quality is so poor, that the fruit will not taste that good. Some citrus trees are meant to be grown for looks rather than as a food product.
As far as I know, there are no lemon trees that are dangerous/poisonous to eat the fruit from, so I believe it is the care or quality of the fruit that makes it not suitable for comsumption.
I have a lemon tree; last year I had 23 lemons of good size. This year I had about 28, but they were all small-- nothing like the size I had last year. What may have happened for these lemons not to get bigger? I keep the tree in the house from Sept.through June, then I put it outside.
Sometimes too many lemons on one plant can cause them to grow
smaller, so be sure to pick them regularly. This article should help with growing lemon trees: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lemons/how-to-grow-a-lemon-tree.htm
I have a eucalyptus lemon tree and it's five months old. It's budding but the buds fall off before flowering. Is this normal, and if not, why does it happen? It's kept indoors at present.
If it is only 5 months old, the tree is probably purging the buds because it is still too small to support the fruit the buds would produce. This is normal. In fact, I would recommend that until the tree is 2 years old, that you remove any blossoms it produces so that it can focus on becoming well established rather than on growing fruit. It will be better for the long term health of the tree.
My lemon and lime trees have hundreds of blooms, but once the small fruit forms, they drop off. What am I missing?
It is normal for limes (and occasionally lemons) to drop their "pea size" fruits just after flowering in spring. They may also drop them again in summer due to the warmer temps. Excessive dropping could be attributed to stress, however.

I have fertilized my potted lemon tree twice in a five-week period, and the leaves are still yellow and green. I am using a citrus fertilizer (6-4-6). I am in the Bay Area of California, and we have had a cool and wet early spring.
If the leaves are green veined, but yellow else where, the plant has a iron deficiency. This article will help fix that:
