FACTSHEETS FOR FARMERS www.plantwise.org Created in Nepal , September 2013 Citrus gummosis Recognize the problem An early symptom of gummosis is sap oozing from small cracks in the infected bark, giving the tree a bleeding appearance. Symptoms can be seen in fruit if the disease is severe. Decline may occur may occur over several years or can happen rapidly within a year, especially under conditions favourable for disease development. It may also be seen if there was high flower initiation. This will ultimately cause the affected plant to collapse...

Citrus × limon
S. canadensis is a 25-250 cm (mean 150 cm) tall, erect rhizomatous perennial with annual aboveground shoots and persistent belowground rhizomes. One to several rhizomes emerge near the base of the dying shoots in autumn, thus leading to a branched rhizome system rooted mainly at the old and current shoot bases. Each rhizome has the potential to produce a single aerial stem arising from the apex of the rhizome in the following spring. Roots arise from the shoot base and reach a minimum depth of 20 cm. Stems are branched only in the inflorescence, glabrous at the base, weakly to densely pubescent at least in the upper half and often reddish. Plants of var. scabra have nodding shoot tips during growth. Leaves are triple-nerved, pubescent beneath, lanceolate, often acuminate, with margins mostly serrate, occasionally entire. Inflorescences form broad pyramidal panicles with recurving branches and a central axis. Bracts of the involucre are linear, obtuse or somewhat acute. Ray florets are lemon yellow, female and fertile, disc florets bisexual and fertile. The corolla is 2.4-2.8 mm long. Achenes are pubescent, 0.9-1.2 mm long, with a pappus of 2.0-2.5 mm.
