Q.

pips in lime trees

Anonymous added on September 7, 2015 | Answered

I, unfortunately, don't know the name of my lime tree but it stands about 2 m tall and I've had it for 9 yrs. It only started fruiting last year with about 100-150 limes but they were full of seeds with little juice. This year I have 100 plus flowers but I'm afraid the fruit will turn out the same. The leaves are yellow/green. Is there anything I can do? Thank you for any advice.

It may have chlorosis, which causes plants to have a funny yellow-green color. This article will help with the chlorosis, if it is chlorosis: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/leaf-chlorosis-and-iron.htm
