Fuji Apple

posted by: sdelafuente on 01.31.2014 at 09:34 am in Fruit & Orchards Forum

I bought a Fuji Apple from Sam's the other day. It was a great deal, only $14. The only problem, I don't too much about growing apples. Any advice?

Red Rio Grapefruit

posted by: sdelafuente on 05.30.2013 at 11:30 am in Citrus Forum

hello all,

i have a red rio grapefruit that i planted a year ago. It was doing very well and a couple months ago it started dropping its leaves and turning yellow. I have fertilized it, i water it every 2 to 3 days, i have put mulch it, i have added gypsum and copperas (mineral for yellowing leaves). A local farmer said it was the water, too salty. It has rained pretty good in the past month or so and still no results. I also put buckets of water out for days to clear up any chlorine. I also create my own compost tea. Next to this tree i have a Persian lime and orange tree and they are doing perfect. Any ideas?

ps the photo is about 2 months ago. its worse now. Only the top leaves remains.

Avocado tree, brown on tip of leaves

posted by: dooger2 on 08.16.2004 at 01:14 pm in Irrigation Forum

The leaves on my avocado tree are turning brown. They started at the very tip and now have covered half the leave... What could be the cause? Your help would be appreciated...
