|Your new tree may simply be showing signs of transplant stress. Different exposure to sunshine, difference in soils and watering can all stress citrus trees. Sometimes even summer heat or windy weather will cause the leaves to curl. I don't think you need to be too concerned about the leaves. Keep your tangerine tree watered as usual and it should be fine. Enjoy!
