Hi Cheryl,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

Looks like the tree is sanctifying the leaves to keep the fruits. Try feed the tree with weekly application of liquid fertiliser. Try 'Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+' as a complete plant food, specially developed for boosting healthy grown and yield of juicy fruit in citrus and other fruiting plants.
