harvested my imperial mandarins but some were still growing but are dropping off the size of a golf balls. Why

Why are the remaining fruits not maturing but instead dropping off. What must I do to stop the fruits from falling. I have fertilised it according to the instructions on a citrus fertiliser bag.

Hi Jose,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

It could due to lack of potassium which is the elements for fruit set. Try weekly application with 'Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+' as complete plant food, specially developed for boosting healthy grown and yield of juicy fruit in citrus and other fruiting plants. 
Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
