Tangelos in Shade and Sand

For the last four years, our tangelos (Citrus County, FL) have failed to produce.  They are shaded to the west by bamboo and a huge flowering tree and the soil is sandy.  We use regular citrus fertilizer. Is there a booster type for growth?

First, you may want to consider pruning back both the bamboo and flowering tree to allow more light to get to the tangelo tree. Citrus trees require plenty of light to grow and produce. Also, you should probably amend your sandy soil for more optimal growing and add some phosphorous to the soil as well to help with blooming.

Tangelos

I live in Tucson, Arizona and this year (for the first time) my tangelos have a very thin skin and are very juicy. I’m trying to figure out what I did wrong because in the past years the tangelos were a little thick skinned, not as juicy, and easy to peel. Your opinion and possible remedy are welcome.

Citrus Tree Watering

I have a tangelo tree that was just planted last October. I was told to water it on Monday and Thursday for 20 minutes in the early morning during the winter months using my automatic drip system. How much and how often should it be watered during the summer months? We are in Mesa, Arizona.

Tangelo Tree Failure to Bloom

Tree is around 15 years old. It has produced wonderful fruit almost every year. Two years ago it failed to set blossoms. It had a fair crop last year and this year it does not have any blossoms.

Yellow Tangelo Leaves and Fruit

I have a tangelo bush in a pot. All the leaves and fruit have turned yellow. I have fed it potash but it still is getting worse. Is there anybody out there that has the answer?

Regarding Tangelo Fruit

Our dwarf tangelo produces fruit, but when picked (it looks properly ripe), the interior flesh is rather pithy mixed with pale orange meat. Fairly inedible. What is the problem? Is the fruit too long on the tree, and should it be picked earlier? Had a dwarf Trovita Orange produce similar inedible fruit last year, but this year it is just fine.

Many factors can effect the fruit on a citrus tree.

Weather, temperatures, moisture, pollination.

Some things you can control, some you can't.

Here are a few links to help you pinpoint the issue with your Tangelo.
