Grapefruit, Mexican lime, and some early oranges are highly susceptible to canker; Navel, Pineapple, and Hamlin oranges, as well as lemons and limes are moderately susceptible; mid-season oranges, Valencias, tangors, tangelos, and other mandarin hybrids are less susceptible; and tangerines are tolerant.
