Location: St. Petersburg, Fla.

I have two orange threes and they produce oranges with are mostly brown or even black. The fruit is good except for the color. What do you think is the problem? I'm sure I'm sure I should be feeding or spraying the threes but need to have a suggestion as to when and with what.

I'd like the fruit to be a nice orange color, if possible.

Many thanks for your help.

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

I am not aware of any thing that causes the discoloring of orange fruit like you described. I suggest you contact your county extension office at the following address and see if one of the experts on staff can provide additional assistance:
12520 Ulmerton Road, Largo, FL 33774

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
