Lime Tree Down!

We just bought a new house and there is a lime tree still down from the hurricanes last year, The roots are exposed, but it is still very healthy looking AND bearing fruit. The are very dry though and bitter.

Should we try to stand it back up after being down this long? And upright or on it's side, what can we do about dry fruit? not sure if it's key lime or not either...

Thanks!

I would replant it there is no hurt in trying and also take off all of the fruit so all of the energy the plant produces goes into making itself healthier and growing new leaves branches and roots its self.
