How to Manage Pests

Pests in Gardens and Landscapes

Fruit drop or no crop

Fruit may drop prematurely. Pollination may not occur and no crop is produced.


Situations where no crop is produced or where fruit drops prematurely may be the result of many factors, including cool weather or insufficient irrigation, that weaken trees. Choose varieties suited for your area that do not require cross pollination. Follow guidelines for irrigating and fertilizing.
