Do not overcrop the tree by leaving too much fruit, because this stresses the tree, resulting in small fruit, reduced tree growth, and possible limb breakage. The plant can't support that much fruit so it aborts some of the load by dropping the fruit. Keep a hands length between the fruit for the biggest and best growth. .
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
