Partially dry segments in orange

    2 responses

Slicko starts with ...
I have 3 naval orange trees, all bearing, a Washington naval, a Navelina and a Lanes Late.
The fruit from the WN and the LL are very juicy but that from the Navelina whilst still juicy tend to be drier at the stalk end. The dryness occupies about 20 mm from the top of all segments.

Does anyone know what causes this??

Hi Slicko,

There are many factors cause dryness citrus fruit such as too much Ni, cold weather, lack of water, fruit left on the tree too long etc. However, if Washington and Lanes perform well in the same spot then I guess Navelina lack of water as it is the earliest season among the three orange trees (summer time). Cheers

Hi David

Thanks for your reply to my question. The tree is young and in its second year of cropping, giving a large crop of large fruit so I guess that this may have contributed also as it received the same treatment as the others that had no dryness issue, in fact quite the opposite.

I am quite the novice when it comes to citrus so I must pay more attention to crop size and water next year.

Thanks again
