Hi,  I had this problem with one of my citrus trees.  I loved the taste of the orange but the outside looked just like you picture.  One of the problems with citrus is if you put fertilizer on the ground

Jay, Again, I do not handle palms at all, as stated I have my reasons.  I sell rare and unusual plants from around the world.  So I do not have to learn about palms, or do I care to.  Call an arborist

Dear Jay,  So sorry you feel that way,  I answered the best I could with a product that gets rid of fungus, mold and bugs.  I am an organic nursery and that is what I use.  You can not please everyone

Hi Jim,  I had a customer call me and say the Neem she got somewhere else has a poison label on it and it did not look like the one she bought from me.  Sure enough it had poison in it that is how I found

2016-05-13 Dwarf Meyer lemon and lime tree problem:

Hi Jim,  Neem is not poison if it is organic, some companies add poison to Neem so read  the label.  You can keep a citrus outside till just above freezing. So about 34 bring them  in.  Do not wait quite
