  • Any other symptoms? We have had a lot of rain this year. Is the location where the tree is planted not draining well?

    has it received an ample amount of food? My Camellia tree tells me when it's hungry by doing the same thing specially after the blooms all die & fall off

    It has gotten old. Fruit trees get old and quit producing much fruit and the fruit usually isn't very good.

      Citrus trees, including orange trees, are among the longest-lived fruit trees. When given proper care, they bear fruit for 50 years or more, according to Four Winds Growers. It's not uncommon for healthy trees to live for more than a century.

    You may have a citrus fruit disease called “citrus greening”. Older citrus trees are not resistant to it. It’s especially a problem in Florida. Call your local farming extension agent to have them diagnose the problem and suggest a cure.

    It might as others have said be that the tree is old. I have an orange and lemon tree, both are young though. But sometimes their leaves look as yours do in this pic. I read where citrus trees need nitrogen so it might be that your tree isn’t getting enough of this.

    Check with your State extension office. Google master gardeners for your state. It will tell you which state university it is associated with. You can call them for questions and answers
