Citrus Greening Disease. Citrus tree infected with the Candidatus liberobacter bacteria. This bacteria causes citrus greening disease, also known as huanglongbing (HLB) or yellow dragon disease. Symptoms include blotchy mottled leaves, and leaf yellowing. The disease greatly reduces fruit production, destroys the value of the fruit, and can kill trees. Once infected there is no cure for a tree with citrus greening disease. Photographed in the Sharon district, Israel.
