Why Won’t My Lemons Stay on My Lemon Tree

dmgonzales3 added on July 19, 2014 | Answered

When I bought this lemon tree it had a couple of lemons on it. I've had it for 2 years now and it blooms a lot then the fruit starts to form until it gets to the size of a pea, then it turns yellow and falls off. Help. What is wrong with my tree? I fertilize it every year. What am I doing wrong?

The first answer is that your tree is simply not old enough. Lemon needs to be at least 3 years old to even start thinking of serious fruiting. After that, here are some articles to help you make sure yours is happy and healthy and producing fruit for many long years: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lemons/how-to-grow-a-lemon-tree.htm
