Yes.  Spray with Copper, several times.

Phosphite would probably be useful also.   There are many brands:  Foliar Phosphite, Agri-Phos, Organocide Plant Doctor, KPhite....
Har, shouldi trim the dying branches back first?

During the dry season, you should be watering your mango. Twice a week for 10 minutes seems to be a good pattern. Consistent watering prevents fruit splitting and helps with nutrient uptake. Since our soil tends to be shallow sand, it dries out very quickly.

Gummosis is often a symptom of copper deficiency, which can be an issue in our high pH soil.

While some mango trees can be "set it and forget it," you really want to establish a consistent fertilization regimen, especially if you have shallow Broward soil underlayed with builder's fill. My favorite mango combo right now is Har's slow release 0-3-16 with minors and sulfur to lower pH.

Lastly, a fungicide program is extremely beneficial. A good copper fungicide product once a month helps stave off anthracnose and provides copper, which is often lacking in our soil.

Jeff, it's watered 3 times a week for like 8 min at a time.... I spray cooler every month and it gets fed 4 times a year with citrus fert.. it's the only tree I have doing this! It's been in the ground for like 18 months and this seems like it happened over night

Looks like a aborted double fruit..... Weird

I got four trees in the ground. One is 8 feet tall, the others are 7, 6, 5 feet tall. No sign of flowers on any of them. I gave them a shot of 0-0-50. Hope that helps to get them to flower soon.

Any pics of your trees Oscar?

I guess I'm lucky! My wife is keeps telling me to rip out the bottle palms and plant more mango trees!
As long as I plant mangos SHE likes. She won't help me in the yard but she will eat, give away and brag about our "strange fruit"
