A couple questions re: young owari satsuma
I have an owari satsuma that was planted 2 years ago from a 5 gallon pot. I'm in SoCal and am a citrus novice. The first year, there were a few small fruits that never matured and eventually just dropped. This year there are quite a few more. I have a few questions:
1) How long does it take for fruit to mature? A couple fruits are starting to show some yellow. But the rest are green. And the tree is blooming. (Is it normal for fruits to still be on while it starts to bloom again?)
2) The fruits seem too heavy for the branches... so they are drooping nearly to the ground. Should I support these branches with stakes? Or is that normal?
Thanks for any help.
