Grapefruit tree

Zone Surprise Arizona | handsomemac added on February 12, 2017 | Answered

My grapefruit tree is losing leaves and they are turning yellow. I have fertilized and it gets water every other day, but it still looks like it's dying. I need to know what I can do about it. Thanks.

Either too much water or too little water can cause citrus tree leaves to turn yellow and drop off. The right amount of water to give depends on how dry your climate is, how the soil feels before and after watering, and how well-drained your soil is. If your soil is not well-drained, water can sit around the roots and cause root rot.
