How to care for a potted citrus(sudachi citrus)

Hello. So I had a sudachi citrus for about 3 years now and it is potted. My dad originally bought it and back then I wasn't too interested. But its different now, I am very interested in growing citrus trees in pots! The sudachi fruits every fall and flowers nicely every summer. However, we never fertilized it even once in the 3 years we had it.I just learned that citrus are greedy feeders but my citrus seems to be doing fine? Regardless, in the long run I think I should do the right thing and feed it. So I will try to get a fertilizer specifically for citrus and if not I'll find something to the nearest 5-1-3. Now my main question is, how often do I have to fertilize my sudachi?
