Citrus General Discussion / My citrus trees need help
« on: February 12, 2020, 01:27:35 PM »
I have 1-2 year old citrus trees that are in ground. They are about 2 to 3 feet tall. I have Satsuma and Kinnow mandarins, Clementine tangerines, eureka lemon, etc. I live in zone 9b in Sacramento California. Leafís are turning yellow, and are thinning out. I see no new growth or blooms. I cannot see any pests on them. I think they are in need of feeding. I gave them citrus fertilizer last year during summer and thatís it.
What kind of fertilizer I need to give them, how much and how often so they grow well?

I have been trying to grow Cherimoya from seeds for a few years in Sacramento California area but no luck.  The summer growth is good but plants die in winter. I did not provide any protection and temperature got as low as 26F some nights. I guess I needed to plant them in pots and give protection in winter by moving them inside or covering with blankets or Christmas lights.
After reading several posts it looks like that Pierce, El Bumpo, Orton and Dream are the best tasting varieties. Would these varieties survive and fruit in my area? Do they have high seed count in them?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Cherimoya tasting events in Southern California

I am looking for cherimoya tasting events in Southern California. I know Irvine had one last year but I did not find out about it until it was already done. Are there any others?
How do I find out about the details on them so I can plan to attend? This Cherimoya lover will be tremendously obliged.  :)
