I use cow manure (composted if you can) dumped on the ground around the tree's drip line, no need to dig it in just let it slowly and naturally sink down to the tree's roots, citrus likes to be fed little and often.

I wee on my citrus daily,1 have 13 and spread it out evenly
When I had an apricot ,I had a compost bin near it that I would wee in it regularly.
It works a treat.

I also throw a bit of charcoal wood ash around when I have some after a barbie (usually pee on it first)
I also threw a bit of crusher dust around the trees too,slow release trace elements and minerals.

Probably should just put it under the tree and pee on it next time. ;)

.....and always wash the fallen fruit.
