Feb 15th, unless the tree has bloomed already. In that case I wait till the fruit is about the size of a dime or nickel and then do it...

Good point. I assumed citrus which is typically what would be fertilized this time of year.

I wouldn't fertilize anything this time of year. Especially if flowering. Best time to fertilize on most fruit crops is right after fruit drop. If you do fertilize use 0 percent nitrogen of low number. Micronutrients probably are more valuable for citrus. My lime bush is in full flower right now. I'm just watering it once a week. If you fertilize, gotta make sure to water it in good or it will burn the shallow roots in a drought. It's dry season now. I don't have a sprinkler system so my schedule is probably different.

The only thing I'm watering now is jaboticaba. They are in full flower.

Mango are in full bloom. I keep them dry this time of year. It's best that mango don't get any water during flowering.
