Why doesn't my blossoming lime tree bear any fruit

it's 9 years old. we recently planted a companion nearby to aid pollination. we also have a healthy productive lemon tree so don't think it's the soil. no obvious disease or pests. does it need grafting?

Dear Vivian,

Your lime tree would already be a grated species. Would you have purchased it from a nursery. The problem seems to be that although it flowers, it is not setting fruit. Lime trees love to be planted in a warm, protected spot in a garden away from strong winds. Regular watering, particularly when the tree is blossoming is essential. I do hope your tree rewards you this year with some beautiful fruit.
