The curled leaves is the plant trying its best to protect itself from the intense heat and sun.  Some shading will help greatly.  Also check to insure that the tree is getting enough water.

I would baby them as Millet has suggested. If that does not work, you may have a slight graft incompatibility issue. From what I have read mandarins are typically compatible with sour orange, but there are exceptions.

Thank you both! I pulled them out of direct sun today. They will only get shade from now on. I check the water frequently and I keep the mix moist. It's strange to me that it is only my mandarins going through this. Should the leaves open back up if conditions improve, or will they stay that way forever? I saw a YouTube video that said once leaves curl, they don't uncurl. But you know, YouTube.....

Yesterday i saw a bee in my garden that looked like it was carrying a small piece of rolled up leaf. I looked it up on the internet and discovered that leafcutter bees are a thing, i didn't know... Apparently they are good pollinators and you can place solitary bee houses to attract them.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Introducing mangos to babies?
« Last post by Gulfgardener on June 09, 2023, 10:41:27 PM »
There is a study I found a couple of years ago that said if they encounter poison ivy before mango, than the chances of them having a reaction to mango was higher. If they are introduced to mango first then they don't get that reaction. Being from MI, I was the poison ivy first scenario and wouldn't recommend. My sensitivity has gone down the more I eat them but as I understand it, it could have easily gone the other way.   

Edit: here is the study https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/15701120/
