Re: So much for this year's crop of Citrumelos :

I see what you're saying but I had a severe storm come through with high winds and torrential rain that I believe just blew and shook them off the tree . The rain beat on them a little too . I was driving through the storm and there were lakes around all the storm drains , and my wipers were going full blast and it was still hard to see of the truck .
They were doing well with little droppage and then that storm came through and bam . I went from seeing fruit all over the tree one day to seeing them all on the ground after that storm .
It was a great flowering year too . The best ever for that tree .
It was also a frost free period during flowering with bees and other insects going to town on the blooms .
I'll learn more about their idiosyncrasies over time but this seemed like the year it should've been loaded .
I do appreciate your input and will keep that in the back of my mind in future years .
