Answer: First of all, you probably will get less harvest than in the field due to growing in a container. Container fruits are more exacting. Be sure your tree isn't subjected to any cold drafts -- these can cause flower and fruit drop. Also, lack of pollination may be a problem -- pollinate flowers by hand with a small paintbrush. Be sure to keep soil moist, especially during flowering and fruiting. And make sure the plant gets plenty of sunshine. During flowering and fruiting, fertilize your tree every other week with a balanced liquid fertilizer at about half strength.
