Hi James, 

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

It's really difficult to say if the homemade pesticide is suitable for edible fruit tree in terms of the withholding time and its efficacy. I would suggest controlling pests by spraying fruiting citrus tree with APVMA proved products such as 'Yates Nature's Way Citrus & Ornamental Spray (Pyrethrum Plus Oil Pest Spray)'. Controls a wide variety on insects pests on many edibles and ornamentals.
