It's a Meyer lemon tree, Chuck. And earlier lemons were larger. Yep it definitely needs some nutrition. I will get on that. I always appreciate your responses.Where you live pruning should be done in early to mid spring. And it could use a good pruning but what jumps out at me is the color of the leaves. It looks to me as if it has nutritional problems, probably a lack of nitrogen but, in any case, I'd give it some nutrition. What variety is the lemon. Many varieties are small fruited
Actually, the camilia bush on the other side of the fence belongs to my neighbor. The tree has been there for years and I believe it has plenty of room. But you are correct, it does need pruning. Thanks a bunch.Looks like it's in desperate need of a pruning. Also what's growing right next to it on the other side of that fence? And it's planted right by pavement. Your tree needs root space to grow well.
If I had to guess I'd say it's in need of care and should have been planted with more room. Could also just grow small lemons.
It is not unheard of for spherical fruits to have cycles in size and quantity outside of environmental inputs. Asian persimmons are an example of this.It's a Meyer lemon tree, Chuck.
