|Because citrus trees are evergreens you'll have to expect that they will eventually drop their oldest leaves from time to time. New leaves will be produced in a few weeks. If the yellowing leaves are scattered throughout the tree and are on the innermost branches, it's normal. On the other hand, if the newest leaves are turning yellow it indicates a need for fertilizer or a dose of Ironite. Hope you have a great harvest!
