On the weekend I lost the top of my big eyes sugar apple to pink disease and have had some citrus impacted also.

I hope the remaining tree stump and a few small branches makes a comeback.

It is a serious disease all over the tropics and impacts on many commercial species. Trimming off and disposing of infected limbs is the main treatment and Sulphur containing fungicides help a bit.
