Citrus General Discussion / Citrus Fruit Size & Quantity
« on: May 18, 2021, 11:03:18 AM »
The growth of citrus fruit is attributed to cell division and cell enlargement, which increases the number and size of cells, respectively, during the first two months following the beginning of fruit set and about four to six months thereafter This period is called Stage 2.
Fruit size increases rapidly as a result of water accumulation in cells during fruit development. Therefore, adequate water supply during spring and early summer is critical to ensure uninterrupted fruit development and growth for better fruit retention. So be sue your trees are watered well.  (Citrus Magazine)

Citrus General Discussion / Exciting Cure For HLB
« on: May 18, 2021, 10:47:59 AM »
The naturally occurring peptide is found in HLB-tolerant citrus relatives, such as the Australian finger lime. The peptide has dual functions of inhibiting Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas) growth in HLB-positive trees and activating host immunity to prevent new infections. Jin said it is rare for a treatment to achieve both of these functions. According to scientist  the peptide’s corkscrew-like helix structure is able to quickly puncture the CLas bacterium, causing it to die typically within half an hour.

Citrus General Discussion / Oak Leaves Research & HLB
« on: April 26, 2021, 05:02:04 PM »
UF research into oak lives and HLB to find what is in oak trees that apparently helps citrus cope with HLB.  .  Researchers have found that applying Oak leaves around citrus trees increased phosphorous, magnesium and potassium levels in the soil.  Further as the leaves were broken down, oil organic matter increased plus more water was trapped in the soil. Over the next two years, Hallman and his research partners at the USDA hope to identify which compounds are beneficial, where those compounds are found in the tree, which oak species hold these compounds and how much of the right compounds will control the disease.

Citrus General Discussion / Citrus Fruit Drop
« on: March 28, 2021, 05:31:52 PM »
According to research by Professor Vashisth of the University of Florida, insufficient water status limits fruit growth during the initial early stage of the young fruits development, immediately after flowering. This will cause fruit drop when the fruit matures. To minimize fruit drop, growers should focus on their irrigation and nutrient management practices. In particular, to prevent water stress beginning in APRIL (important). Water stress reduces the number of fruits and the eventual size of the fruit — and increases the likelihood of premature fruit drop.

Citrus General Discussion / Sugar Belle Orang & HLB
« on: March 02, 2021, 06:19:45 PM »
Studies of the resilient qualities of the Sugar Belle will lead to the development of a cultivar that completely resist  citrus greening. Sugar Belle's tolerance also positively impacts phloem regeneration.  Phloem is the tissue that serves as the plant's plumbing system  to move sugars produced in the leaves throughout all plant parts, from roots to fruit. HLB blocks the plumbing, but  Sugar Belle has a unique capacity to grow new "pipes" bypassing the plugged pluming.

Citrus General Discussion / Hanging Fruit And New Blooms
« on: February 03, 2021, 03:13:05 PM »
It has long been known that when last years fruit are left hanging on the tree, new blooms will not develop on those branches.  I have a New Zealand Lemonade tree that I have been eating off for most part of a year.  Today I noticed that every branch the still retains fruit did not flower, therefore those branches will not produce fruit this year.

Citrus General Discussion / My In Ground Cara Cara
« on: December 06, 2020, 04:33:28 PM »
The fruit on one branch of my in ground Cara Cara is producing fruit with orange flesh.  The cultivar Cara Cara originally begun as a limb sport of a Washington Navel orange tree in Venezuela , and has occasionally shown in some trees limb reversion back to the mother variety of Washington Navel orange.  Time will tell if this branch continues to produce blond fruit.  My tree is presently about 11-feet high and 12 feet wide and 15 to 20 years of age..

Citrus General Discussion / Things To Remember When Pruning
« on: November 25, 2020, 03:11:47 PM »
Vertical branches or vertical flushes are very vigorous with a lot of vegetative growth. Horizontal branches (up to 45°) produce most of the fruit and most of the quality. Weaker branches toward the bottom of the tree tend to produce less fruit and are more susceptible to disease.

Citrus General Discussion / Bomand
« on: October 10, 2020, 10:59:11 PM »
Many members on this form remember Bomand.  He was a frequent poster until he came down with Corvid.  It has been 5 or 6 weeks since he became sick, and we have not heard anything as to how he is doing.  I'm concerned, as the weeks go by.  Keep him in your prayers and your thoughts.  God help Bomand.
