Imperial mandarin 8 yrs old, has produced beautiful juicy fruit for few years. This years fruit dry and pithy.

My Imperial mandarin tree is 8 yrs old and has produced beautiful juicy fruit for few years. This years fruit has been dry and pithy although the appearance of the fruit has presented well. The tree is in reasonable health, a bit spindly but it is Winter....it has looked better. I haven't seen any pests or disease symptoms after a thorough inspection . Any ideas on what could be causing the dry fruit? Regards Graham Walker

Hi Graham,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Generally, dry fruit is due to lack of water, could it due to underwatering during the fruit forming? Additionally, look into the soil structure and moisture holding capacity, you may in prove the soil structure by adding organic matter such as Dynamic lifter. You may also try adding mulch on top of the soil to keep moisture in the ground. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
