Grapefruit Tree


Albert Hodge added on January 1, 2017 | Answered

We just bought a house, and there is a grapefruit tree in the backyard. It is about 12 feet high. I have removed the dead branches. There is not a lot of fruit, and the fruits are very dark. Some of the leaves are wrinkled and dark. What should I do? I really want to keep it. Thank you in advance.

The dark, wrinkled leaves could be citrus leaf curl or one of the diseases discussed below:
