meyer lemon tree has bitter fruit
What could cause my twenty-year old Meyer lemon tree to produce bitter fruit? The lemons used to be sweet and tangy but now are unpleasant tasting. Due to drought conditions in California, I have cut back on water, but the tree looks healthy and continues to produce lots of normal-looking lemons. I fertilize it with standard citrus granules three times a year. Thank you.

I would increase the watering. Soil should be damp, not soggy, drying slightly between watering.
