well, some of y'all who are old-timers here (from before the crash) may remember my quest for the perfect tree to plant dd's placenta in (this was about 14 months ago). we finally settled on the meyer lemon, and it has been growing really well. i take extra special care of it, water it often, fertilize when needed.
here's my problem. the tree blossoms with tons of beautiful gorgeous smelling flowers, then those turn into lots of tiny little green lemons, some of which get a little bigger, many of which turn yellow and fall off. but only twice in over a year, have those lemons matured into full sized, yellow lemons we can use. right now i have a ton of little green lemons (about the size of ping-pong balls) on the tree and they have been there for months. what am i doing wrong?
i love this tree and would love to see some ripe lemons. it gets plenty of sun and water and is potted in a very large terracotta pot. it gorws new leaves all the time.
