Provided your Orangery is frost free, leave the tree in there over winter and then put outside in the garden for the summer. The atmosphere in the average house is far too dry for these trees.
Some leaf drop during winter is normal in our climate ........if it is fed and watered correctly it will soon replace leaves when the temps. begin to rise.
Fruit can remain on the tree even when new flowers are out - it is quite normal. However, as your tree looks a rather poor specimen, remove the fruit now and eat if it is ripe
