Grapefruit Trees

Why are my Citrus sparse with leaves and blooms?

Zone Phoenix | jls added on March 14, 2012 | Answered

When I moved into my current home my citrus thrived for several years with little attention on my part. Last year I started watering on a schedule (every 2-3 weeks as well as fertilizer 2-3 times a year). This year my grapefruit had only 3 fruits and my navel about 5-10. My tangelo (located near my house in the shade) has half of usual fruit. This spring they have few leaves and fewer blooms - I don't know what to do.
