Lemon tree problems

Live in Lakeland Fla. Have a Meyer lemon tree. The tree produces a lot of large lemons but the lemons have no juice.

Report as

The tree probably isn't getting enough water during the growing season.

The reason that the lemons have less juice is because of excess nitrogen, which cuts short the fruit storage life. This is also the reason behind the fruit skin thickening. You can get more details about this from http://www.ehow.com/facts_7708849_lemon-skins-very-little-juice.html.
