Q.

Thick rind on my limes that have no juice and smell bitter

Zone 77536 | Jramos313 added on May 28, 2019 | Answered

I live in Houston Tx, my lime tree is loaded with limes for the first time, but have a thick rind and very bitter (doesn’t smell like a lime). Is it to late to add the nitrogen or phosphorus? Or is it possible to add the nitrogen and phosphorus next year just before foliage begins to flower, to have a good crop? And which of the nitrogen and phosphorus is best for this region?
