Default immature citrus fruit dropping off (have tree lemon pot flowers)


I have patiently and excitedly waited for my lime tree (in a terracotta pot)
and my lemon tree (young and planted in the ground) to bud and produce
fruit. All was going well, lots of flowers, lots of tiny little limes and
lemons only to see them drop off and disappear! I am very disheartened. Any
tips on why this is happening? I notice the kaffir lime I have nearby is
thriving and producing lots of useless kaffir limes!! :-( I have noticed
some cobwebs on my lime..... any ideas?

I'm afraid it's a natural process -- they set a lot of fruit, then most of
them drop off. They are practicing for next year, when I trust you will get
some fruit, though not a huge number. Remember that young plants are still
establishing themselves and getting the hang of reproduction. They're
actually a pair of sullen, spotty ****agers slouching in your back yard, not
yet responsible members of society.

Default immature citrus fruit dropping off (water flowers)


Depends on the age of the trees
The same thing will happen with a lack of water ... or perhaps
Too much water
Or even with a lack of bees for fertilisation
The latter is a problem I am facing at the moment
Not only with fruit trees, but also melons, pumpkins and marrows
Forced to artificially cross fertilise manually using male
flowers for the pumpkins

Thanks Chooke and Giovani for the advice (and thanks Chookie for a good
laugh! Spotty ****agers indeed!)

While the root system is developing, they do act like spotty ****agers,
but if the tree is kept well fertilised, the acne disappears in some,
letting the fruit hand around to develop properly...
It all spends on the jeans.
