Lemon Zest issue - any suggestions?
« on: December 05, 2017, 06:48:44 PM »
Hey Everyone - I live in SW Fl near the gulf in very sandy soil.  Iíve been fortunate to have very few issues with my mango trees thus far (Pickering, Glenn, Valencia Pride, lemon zest, PPK, Maha Chanok, Nam Doc Mai, Angie, Sweet Tart, Lancatilla).  Strangely - my relatively young Lemon Zest has started looking sickly.  Any ideas what might be wrong and how to improve t based on the pictures below? Any help would be hugely appreciated!

Looks like a raging case of spider mites to me.

I concur.  A couple of good blasts of water will nail them and/or a horticultural oil spray.
