Bacterial spot on rosigold mangoes
« on: June 13, 2018, 06:20:37 PM »
I have what appears to be bacterial spot on 1 of 2 rosigold mango trees. pictures included for help verifying this.  Last year I had this same presentation on 1 out of 2 of my sweet tart mango trees.  It has not presented itself again this year on the sweet tart tree that was affected last year. Fingers crossed that it will not be a consistent yearly affliction.

Trim affected leaves and twings then apply 0.3% copper oxychloride every 3 weeks, add few soap drops. Dress the cut twings with wax or grazing paste. That is a good every point for bacteria to cause slow die back to the tree.

Not bacterial spot, just anthracnose.

Alex, the middle fruit in the middle picture does have a fissure that looks more characteristic of MBBS.

I see what youíre referring to now but itís difficult to view in the photograph. Maybe OP can take more pics.

As best I can tell over the last few years Rosigold doesnt seem too prone to MBBS.

OK. That does not look like MBBS. Probably just a split due to the rain that got infected.
