|Citrus trees have the reputation for producing far more flowers than they can ever develop into fruits. There's a natural thinning process when the fruits are about pea size. Those fruits that do remain should develop into mature lemons. I know it's disheartening to lose those little fruits but it's a natural process and there's nothing you can do to keep your tree from shedding excess fruits. I know you'll enjoy your harvest.
