Foliar BBS and fruit BBS are completely different. For example, NDM readily gets foliar BBS, but I've never seen it on the fruit. Foliar BBS can generally be ignored.

Thanks Alex and Har.  So I guess at this point I just need to wait to see if the fruit develops it too.  What are the odds my fruit would have BBS considering the tree has foliar BBS?

There’s no direct correlation. Sweet Tart can get both.

Thanks Alex & Cookie Monster.  I'm hoping my trees stay safe from the fruit BBS.  There's no preventative measures that we know of at this point right (for fruit BBS)?

Does it spread to other trees easily?  I have 1 tree that has it in the leaves.  Tree is still in a 5gal pot.  Not sure what to do with it?  I could probably strip all leaves and it would come back ok.  Its in a greenhouse and all the mango trees in there are growing nicely.  Just dont want to infect the rest of them.  It sucks they are shipping this from FL to CA

At Palm Beach County Rare Fruit Council plant sales, I have been head plant inspector for years.  I have cut off any leaves or twigs that I believed to have Mango Bacterial Black Spot, on lightly infested plants.  Otherwise, I have rejected plants from the sale.  I have been regarded as overly picky.

I'd treat it with a systemic copper.  Phyton 35 (expensive) or Magnabon CS2005.
