Have a large grapefruit tree (4mtr) with small fruit (mandarin size) any help?

I dont know how old the tree is of what type of grapefruit it is. It was already here when we bought the house 2 years ago. I put citrus fertiliser on it last year but I have seen no change...

Answer: Hi Louise,

The grapefruit will grow over the Summer months and then be ready to harvest late Autumn into Winter. Ensure the tree is adequately watered during the hot Summer months and apply some citrus fertiliser such as Dynamic Lifter for citrus each Spring and again in Autumn. Most citrus have a larger crop every second year.
