Can a citrus tree (in my case, a Meyer lemon) produce too many lemons for its own good?
Tree is about 3 feet tall, trunk diameter about an inch and a half. There are a few dozen ripe lemons at any given time, however, this spring it has literally thousands of blooms. Some groupings of buds containg 20+ flowers.
I can't imagine the tree burdened by this much fruit. I know that citrus self-thin, but is there anything I should do to help it?
