Possibly a little freezing the past winter. Or too much nitrogen which
can cause the fruit to become large and pulpy with thick rinds. Or a
phosphorus deficiency. Try using a "complete" citrus fertilizer and
follow instructions on the bag as to frequency and amount. If possible,
bring a sample to the diagnostic clinic at Master Gardener Office at the
P.O.R.A. building in SCW on Thursday, May 4, at 10:00am for analysis and
