Citrus trees

Asked May 6, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

Why are my citrus trees dropping fruit? I only planted them this year I have a Meyer Lemon, a grapefruit and a orange too, do I need to purchase another set of these trees?

Since they are young trees this is not a problem. Most growers remove the fruit on their young trees to allow the trees to establish their root systems and put energy into new leaf and stem growth. Usuallly the 3rd year after planting is when you'll see good fruit production. Thanks for the question.
