Tangelo Oranges Falling Off the Tree Early

What causes the fruit on my tangelo tree to split and fall off prematurely? It seems that when the fruit starts to change color it splits and falls off. The tree is about 9 years old. This has never happened before.


Hardiness Zone: 10a

I believe this can happen to any citrus fruit, when it has experianced extreme weather, either drying out to much or too much water and fruit swells making them heavy and splitting and dropping.
