Leaf Curl On Citrus Trees

Curl leaves on citrus trees might have different reasons. You need to observe carefully to identify the possible cause to get a resolution. Although some issues are minor and it will not affect the production of the fruits. However, some problems will result in very severe outcome if you don’t treat it carefully.

If you leave your citrus trees in coldness, they will have curled leaves with brown spots on it. You should remove the tree container into place with full sunlight. Sometimes, insufficient water will also cause the new leaves to roll over. You should apply adequate water instantly to prevent further damage on your trees. During the first two weeks, you should deeply and evenly spread water to an area to enable the roots to absorb enough water in short period of time. You can use some drip emitters to facilitate the watering process. Remember to avoid over-watering because over-watering can cause the curling leaves as well.

Apart from the above, the insects can also cause the curling or rolling leaves of your citrus trees. Some insect sprays can be used to expel the insects. If the curling leaves have a clear line from the healthy leaves, you can do some pruning work to remove these ill foliage. Also, some fungi can affect the leave and trunk of a citrus tree as well. The leaves affected by a fungus will have red or yellow spots on the surface of the leaves. Some fungicide can be applied during winter or spring before the new buds appears.

Sometimes you may see the leaves cup downward in winter days. You do not need to worry about this matter since they will be completely replaced by the new leaves in the next spring.
