Strong, persistent wind can damage citrus by dehydrating the leaves or even stunting the growth of young
trees. Drying winds cause bronzing, pitting, and curling of leaves, mostly on the outside of the canopy
exposed to the wind. Strong winds may cause fruit to rub against twigs or thorns and develop scars.
To avoid wind damage, create a windbreak or plant trees in a sheltered area.
