    Hi All!

    So I’m a rookie that wants to grow and edible garden & I came across this small Annona tree that looked diseased BUT I love Annonas and was wondering if you guys think that it is treatable and if so, how I can nurse it back to health? If anyone could help me out by providing feedback it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    Take a leaf, put it in a plastic bag, and take it to your local county agricultural plant pathology lab for analysis.

    They'll ID whatever pest it is and send you a report at no charge.

    They'll also recommend the best means of combating whichever pest is messing with your tree.

    I've had excellent results combating fruit tree pests with Neem oil myself.

    Neem oil's a fairly benign means of dealing with a wide array of fruit tree pests, and is available at any nursery.

    Good luck mate!
