Tangerine Trees
Q.

Tangerines turning yellow, then brown in one spot

Zone 90807 | dbergeronbirge added on October 30, 2017 | Answered

Can anyone help? My tangerine tree is very prolific. It is planted in the ground. Last season we had the start of the above-mentioned problem, and this year, it is much worse. We usually get a great crop by January (we live in Long Beach, CA; about 7 miles from the ocean.) This year, there are a lot of the fruits with this widening spot.. We've checked a few inside and there doesn't appear to be any insects or worms inside. I checked the UCDavis ag dept. list and couldn't find the problem in their list. Thanks for any help/suggestions.

This sounds like it could be a case of citrus brown rot. There is not a lot you can do for treatment, but if you use the methods that are described in the article, then you can rid the tree of the disease.
