Lemon Tree - Knowledgebase Question

I just picked up a Meyers lemon tree that I had ordered from the nursery. I have had it here for a week and now the tiny baby fruits on it are turning yellow. I'm assuming they are going to fall off. Do you know what would cause this?

Since you've only recently acquired your lemon tree, I expect it has gone through a stressful period while being transported to the nursery and then to your home. It probably came from a perfect environment at the grower's greenhouse. Give your tree a chance to adjust to its new environment before expecting great things from it. In the meantime, be sure it gets full sunshine and enough water to keep the soil from drying out.
