What type of citrus is this?

I have had it for about 3 years, it was a gift to me and told me it was oranges but didn't know what variety. Last year it tried to fruit but they all didn't make it. In April it start blooming and now it has about 15 fruits hanging on, They are pretty big. They are in the ground

Here is a pic of the whole tree. Also should I cut some fruit off? The main branch is all bent and the fruit is like 2 feet of the ground.

Hard to tell. Kind of looks like a seedling. Kind of looks like a lemon, but cannot tell because I can't see if there are thorns, or see if the flower buds are purplish. It could be a navel orange but can't see the bottom of the fruit to see if there's a navel (a Valencia would be ripe, now, as it ripens May - July or thereabouts). I would just support the branch and wait until winter when the fruit is ripe to see what you've got.
