You can use Ironite to help the fruit tree foliage turn a darker shade of green. The browning can be due to a build up of salts in our alkaline soil, or because of the intense summer heat. Flooding the soil to leach out the salts is something you can do every month or so during the growing season. The goal is to move the salts down into the ground past the root system. Once you do that, the leaves won't show the crispy margins. Best wishes with your plants.
