university_of_florida.gifCitrus tristeza virus (CTV) is a major cause of the decline and eventual death of trees on sour orange rootstocks. Initially, affected trees have small leaves and twig dieback. Diseased trees often produce a crop of very small fruit. Eventually, large limbs die back and the tree gradually declines. In some cases, trees may suffer from quick decline and wilt and die in a matter of weeks.
