I've noticed some leaf irregularities on some of my pomegranates and am wondering if it might be mites or some type of disease. I don't see anything when I look. Basically some of the leaves grow with a twist with the edges seeming to curl in a thin roll. I don't see it on the vigorous new shoots, but on the leaves on older leaves and a few around flowers. I've also had trouble last year with the pom fruit rotting from the calyx back as discussed in some other threads, which seems to be a common issue for some growers here in hot humid sections on the east coast.
This is an example:
And here are a few near some buds:
Any thoughts on what this is and how, or even if, I should treat it. Neem oil? Serenade? This happened last year as well and It doesn't noticeably effect the growth, at least that I can tell. The poms are growing in containers on my asphalt driveway.
