Getting citrus to fruit

Mohrsville, PA(Zone 6a)

I have a Meyer lemon and a couple Key limes that flower, but won't hold the fruit. The small fruits form, but after a week or so they fall off. The lemon is getting ready to flower again so any help would be appreciated.

Don't water, keep it in direct sunlight. If its in a pot, let it get pot bound. And fruit drop is normal. The trees will only retain as many fruit as the tree can successfully support. It may drop 80%. That's still normal.

Thanks for the info. I've been letting the soil dry before watering, It has dropped most of it's leaves yet is loaded with buds.
