Hi we have moved and I would like to know what these trees might be and what I should be doing with them. I have never had a fruit tree to care for. I think they are all some sort of fruit but I maybe wrong.
I has some fruit on it and some small ones are turning yellow and falling off
Some of leaves on this tree have some black dots on it
Close up of some of the leaves. A friend said it maybe a mango.
The first looks like citrus of some sort? Have you cut open a piece of fruit to have a look?
The first 2 both look like citrus. Maybe crush and smell the leaves, and cut open fruit. No 3 looks familiar but escapes memory at the moment.
The 3rd one gets yellow fruit on it – can never remember the name – hang on I’ll ask DH.
1st & 2nd are citrus.
How big is the fruit now?
1st could be an orange or maybe grapefruit.
2nd looks as if it has growth below the graft.
3rd is a loquat.
With the citrus crush the leaves and smell the flowers they tend to have similar oils to the fruit and smell the same as the fruit should in many cases ie a lemon smells like lemons, mandarin smells like mandarin etc.
3rd may be a loquat but not sure something doen’t seem quite right about the leaves for that. The ones around here have smoother edge than that tree.
I have a few loquat trees some leaves are serrated others smooth.
I agree with Judi B:tup:
thanks for the replies.
I went down and tried to smell them but my nose doesn’t work too well. I know they both smell different but I wouldn’t have a clue what they smell like. I cut one of the fruit in half and smelled it and if I had to guess it maybe a lemon. Here’s a photo of it. The end of this one is dented in a bit but the others one are not.
Also some of the new leaves coming through are curled and twisted. Is that normal? Will they straighten out as they grow?
I think it may be a pomello this fruit
I also think that the first two look like citrus and the 3rd has a leaf like a loquat.
Ditto, Gianna, it looks like a loquat to me too.
Yep.. tree 3 is a Loquat.
Get to the fruit before the birds do 😆
