Problem Solver: Large/Oversized Leaves

If new leaf growth on your tree is much larger than the existing or original foliage, it may need additional sunlight. Trees grown indoors without a bright sunny window/grow lights, or trees grown in shady spots outdoors, will produce nice foliage but tend not to bloom and fruit as well as trees with adequate light.

Also, check to be sure that a rootstock sucker has not taken over. Often rootstock branches grow more vigorously and have larger leaves than those of the fruiting wood. Be sure to remove all growth below the graft union. See this link: Suckers
