I recently began growing Meyer Lemons from seeds that I obtained from family members 30 plus year old (full size) Meyer Lemon tree. I choose this strain because Meyer Lemons are a cross between a traditional Lemon and a Tangerine; so they are freeze tolerant for the purposes of where I reside (pacific northwest).

 

So lets see what you've got . . .

I have a dwarf Blood Orange that I bought in Florida. It grows well, but I have a problem with pollination. It gets a lot of small green fruit and they all drop off.

Not sure about citrus trees but I know with most other fruit trees you need more than one to pollinate. I planted one apple tree years ago & it done nothing. The following year I planted two more near by & all three produced fruit.
