Avocado and Citrus Fruit Tree Health Problems

I live in southern Florida. My avocado is now only growing little acorn size fruit, that then drop, and leaves. The same is true of my citrus trees which are always covered with a black substance. This has been going on for the past 2 years. It is a shame as they were doing so well.

I've found that my fruit trees only survived if started in passive shade and my avocado was producing many huge size fruit, but not now. I have been giving them expensive fertilizer lately, but no change. My mango is no problem it is a factory. I don't eat much, but I enjoy giving the fruit away and have felt like I been doing battle to keep them alive.

You could have a pest or a disease. Take pictures to the local garden center. I would also take a sample of the slime. They will be able to help you.

You might be having poor drainage problems. Any pooling of water below can cause this to your trees.

the big problem I see is you are trying to grow California-weather trees in Florida weather. The heat is fine but the humidity is probably way too much for them.

I'm not sure what would be a good solution for this save maybe create a greenhouse with a dehumidifier and a way to make it not get so hot
