Pruning A Meyer Lemon Tree?

Answer

The optimum time of year for pruning Meyer lemon trees is the dormant season, December, January (best) and until the middle of February. For Meyer lemon trees, remove about 20% of last years growth. Do most of the pruning in the top of the tree so that the lower branches are exposed to sunlight. Sun exposed wood remains fruitful and produces the largest fruit. Shaded branches eventually stop fruiting and will never produce without drastic topping and renewal of the entire tree.
