Tangerine Tree seedlings leaves are curled?

Hi. I just posted a question here about a minute ago, and just noticed something with my tangerine tree. The leaves are curled up lengthwise and I am wondering if it's a nutrient deficiency. I haven't fertilized all winter. Could a little fertilizer fix this? Or is this a symptom of a disease or something much worse? Thanks a bunch.

There only seem to be two leaves that are actually curled. I thought there were more, but I was also barely awake when I posted the question and noticed the curled leaves. It's the one I'm holding, and the one below it. I probably caught it before it could get too bad. Here's the pic:

RE: Tangerine fruits are sour

My honey tangering tree produces sour fruit. Its been almost 4 years since I planted but it never give me sweet orange taste. Also the skin is hard to peel. Is there something I have to do to make the tree produces sweet orange taste? Does it matter if its planted next to other species of fruit tree? Thanks for your advice. Randy5491

mcgyvr, that's a normal leaf shape :-) If they get very cupped, then it could signal a dry tree. Your little tree looks fine to me :-)

Randy, could we please ask you to post your question in it's own thread?

Ok Patty, My tangerine tree produces sour fruit. Its been almost 4 years since I planted but it never give sweet orange taste. Also the skin is hard to peel. Is there something I have to do to make the tree produces sweet orange taste? Does it matter if its planted next to other species of fruit trees? Thanks for your advice. Randy 5491
