|White spots on the surface of the leaves can indicate sunscald or might be evidence of an insect piercing the surface of the leaves. Neither is a real threat to your citrus tree and the leaves will be shed in a year or two. I'm glad you're waiting for the weather to cool before planting your new tree.
