Medium_image Loads of tiny limes on dwarf tree. Do I need to thin them out?

Hi - we have a dwarf Tahitian lime tree which we planted in a pot a couple of months ago. It flowered like crazy and now we have loads of tiny limes on all the branches. Doesn't seem like the tree will be able to support all those limes, so should we be thinning them out ourselves? Or will the tree take care of it by itself? We're also having issues with a mandarin tree but I'll post that separately. Thanks!

Answer: Hi Claire,

Thank you for contacting Yates regarding your citrus tree, we normally recommend picking off flowers or fruits in the first couple of years so the tree can focus on developing roots and branches. Try Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+ Concentrate, the dual acting formula feed through both leaves and roots to boost healthy growth and prolific fruits.
