Urea fertilizers that  are high in biuret can cause leaf burn.  if your urea does not show a biuret content you could spray a small portion of leaves and see if there is any  leaf burning affect.  If not then the biuret content in the product will be OK.

Vnomonee, Yes low biuret Urea does a good job helping a tree to retain fruit.  However, research has found to accomplish fruit retention low biuret urea has to be sprayed in march or April.  This is because once the opportunity to increase flower number has passed, later applications of low biuret  urea will increase the retention of abscising reproductive organs (fruit).

Because it is a fertilizer, it will work to some ability but I don't know of any research on that.

This week is the time to foliar spray your citrus trees with low biuret urea.  Doing so will produce larger sized fruit.

I agree with jdfergason diagnosis .  When digging a hole to plant a citrus tree in, ONLY fill the hole with the dirt dug from the digging. Also I agree that the soil pH and the excessive sun/heat is causing much of the problem.

Large over sized containers stay wet much longer and plants frequently get root rot.

Looking again it does look like a magnesium deficiency  However it certainly is just a lite case.  Spray the tree with Epsom salts and drench the soil with 4 ounces of Epsom salts per gallon.   Apply in the early morning.

Definitely not a manganese deficiency.  A manganese deficient leave shows green veins with green boarders to the sides of the veins, on otherwise yellow leaves.  If anything it looks starting to be deficient of nitrogen.

Big improvement.   Good job caring for the tree.

The damage to the tree is from the root system. A container tree growing in a black container in full direct sun will raise in temperature to over 120+++++ quickly.  The roots quickly become cooked.  You should paint the container white to reflect the sun's rays. Or put some shade protection in front of the container.  Using a thermometer in the container soil will tell you what the root zone temperature is .

Today, water stress to induce flowering is commonly done on a large scale every year on lemons to obtain a large crop. However, the lemon trees are fully grown mature trees.  Weather this is the cause on a small immature seedling is quite another manner.

Walt, your post is quite interesting.  I learned more information concerning PT.   I wish you the best.

The normal length of time for a Naval orange to flower is 7 to 10 years from planting the seed.  On rare occasions an early bloom will appear, then followed by a long period of no blooms.   Almost always an early bloom on a seedling will not produce a fruit that last for an extended period.   What is written is the normal, but time will tell with your seedling tree. It will be interesting for this board if you will post from time to time your tree's developments.  Welcome to the forum, we are glad to have you as a member.

In a couple weeks please post the results of how your tree is doing.

I also think the tree is greatly under nourished   You are not giving the tree the nutrient level it enquires.

Does NY stand for New York?  I would buy NOTHING from New York

Great answer Galatians 522  Your right on.

How much fruit depends on the size of the tree.  My most productive is Cara Cara and it is also the largest tree (13 ft. H and 13 ft. wide). For my smaller size trees, the most productive would be Ponkan.  Ponkan fruit have a lot of juice, are quite  sweet and VERY easy to peel, but contain 3 or 4 seeds.  Still Ponkan is my second favorite fruit.

You can probably get one on Flying Dragon from Madison citrus Nursery
