Variegated Pink Lemonade Tree Has Never Blossomed


Moon67 added on January 20, 2014 | Answered

We live in Las Vegas, NV. The variegated Pink Lemonade tree is approximately 7 feet tall. I also have a lemon and a mandarin orange tree approximately 15 feet tall and they both produce an abundance of fruit. The variegated Pink Lemonade tree is approximately 10-15 ft. from the other citrus trees. The variegated Pink Lemonade has never produced blossoms.

There are a couple of reasons this can happen.

First, the tree may not be mature enough to bloom. It need to be about 6 years old before it is able to bloom.

Second, there may be too much nitrogen or too little phosphorous in the soil around the tree. I would recommend having the soil tested and adding some bone meal to around the base of the tree.
