Q.The new limes on my lime tree turned yellow
What do I do? Over the last few days the new limes on my dwarf lime tree, which are the size of grapes, turned from beautiful healthy green to sickly yellow. This has never happened in the previous years. What could be wrong? Last year was our best year in yield and flavor. I haven’t done anything different, except for using Miracle Grow about two weeks ago. We have had a lot of rain within the past two weeks in this part of S. C.

It may have some root rot due to the excessive rain. The first thing a tree will get rid of when stressed is the fruit. Really, the only thing you can do is try to improve drainage.
