Greening (Citrus Tree, Orange)

Zone Bradenton, Fl. 34209 | Paul Mac added on February 26, 2017 | Answered

I suspect I may have greening. Although my trees (2) are only 4-5 yrs. young, I do have about 3 dozen oranges on one tree and none on the other; I think it might be dwarfed. The one with the fruit is a Navel tree. I tasted one orange and it's not bitter and is quite orange in color. They are not fully developed yet, but if I have greening, who do I contact? I am in Bradenton, FL and any help would be appreciated.

Contacting your local extension service is a good idea. They may be able to check your trees, and they definitely will have information about citrus greening and other citrus diseases in your area.
