    They look fine to me, several of mine did the same thing, they are just adjusting to their new home. The new leaves coming out look perfect.

      My trees from Florida did the same thing. I think the humidity adjustment is to blame. The new growth on mine is fine though.

          Looks like minor sunburn. Do they get morning sun? It looks like maybe dew drops concentrated the sun causing spotted sun burn. If that's the case they will be fine, leave them where they are.

            They do get morning sun from 6am-11am the no direct sunlight. I still not understand tho if these trees came from sun all day in Florida and were hardened off there. They were only in shipping box for few day and then in my garage under grow lights for maybe month because was too cold to keep out side. Do the have too "re acclimate to the light"?

            I wish we all could invent sunblock spray for existing leafs. Then we could just spray on and put in full sun right away and not have to mess around.

              They were most likely in a green house in Florida which is filtered light. Additionally, the drop in humidity plays a large factor like pulling a rooted cutting from a humidity chamber and watching it dry out.

              And yes they got soft under the artificial light, they will need to be hardened off again.

            Yes a month in the garage would require you to reharden them off.

                They look fine to me. The new leaves should be beautiful and acclimated.
