is this frost damage?
« on: February 23, 2021, 08:01:46 AM »
My Mcdill white sapote has some bark splitting on the tip of the branches. I was wondering if this could be a result of cold temps or something else. The tree has not even droped a leaf due to cold weather. Min temps were around 24F

Cut it off, that branch will flower fruit, and grow slower with that area
