Have one citrus tree that the fruit is dry, don't know why plenty of water & fertilizer, full of fruit, nice size and color, no visible signs of disease, any clues.

MP 350,
High N and/or Low Phosphorus during development of fruit stage could cause low juce content. Take a tissue sample of that tree and have it tested to deteramine the nutrient status of the tree in question. Your cooperative extension will be able to assist you.
