Can I spray weed killer under my fruit tree? Will the spray get into the fruit? I live in Jacksonville Fl.

Welcome!

Are you talking about Roundup or some other glyphosate based weed killer? If so, spray away - but avoid spraying the leaves or trunk of your tree.

It would not be safe to use most "broad leaf" herbicides, however.

Read lable, most have a waiting period before planting edibles.
Use some good ol straight 5 percent white vinegar, as a contact weed killer. It won't hurt soil, or kill anything you don't spray. Just be sure to rinse sprayer and nossel out, after use.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
