Maybe a reaction to the hot then cold weather spurts we've been seeing.

To my uneducated eye, I'd say more fungal or bacterial.

I have no idea how long ago it happened but I just noticed it a few days ago.   I have segregated the tree just to be safe but, oddly enough, the rest of the tree looks great and it is now pushing a new flush of growth.

George,
I think the Carrie roots should be covered with soil and not visible.

110+ fruit trees/plants; 70+ mango trees; 12 jackfruit; 6 avocado; 3 persimmon; 2 longan; and a dog that keeps raccoons and squirrels away.

The good news is it happened to your Carrie, and not another prized variety  ;)

Good point Gunnar.  At least it was something that is easily replaceable.   This also provides another fine excuse to play hookie one day this week and go to Zills.

I've had mango trees do that splitting thing shortly after a cold blast immediately preceded by warm weather. I just use it as an opportunity to lop the tree down below the splitting, and it comes back fine.

Noticed this today after checking up on my mangoes after the cold spell. Is it early P.M.?  It is only on the pannicles, should I cut them off so it does not spread to the rest of the cogshall or my other trees? Spray? I was hoping to let fruit set this year, some small bb's on all the pannicles so far, and some more growth seems to be budding.  This sucks!!

Its powdery mildew. Wettable sulfur works well, there are numerous brands. Most effective when started pre-emergence.

Been a lot of powdery mildew this year. Bonide makes a good micronized sulfur.

I had previously been averse to fungicides, but after many years of watching powdery mildew, scab, and anthracnose ravage my mango crop, I finally threw in the towel and started spraying on a once every 2 weeks schedule. Huge difference in fruit set.

Can Bonide be bought locally? Every 2 weeks year round? Should I spray my unaffected trees near by? None of them seem to have it, and the cogshall has at on ONE branch of ONE fruit spike.  Ugh this sucks.

Bonide can be bought at home depot.  I believe You would only spray while a tree is flowering.

So sulfur for PM. Should I spray other trees as well or wait and see if it spreads?

I was always using sulfur paste paint on (add water to sulfur dust) for PM with 70% effective, but my brother had used neem-oil and it looked much better.

Thanks Bullie, thats exactly what I was looking for, an article like that. Found one but was not 100% if same critter since article was from Australia.  Well I guess war it is. I have had significant fruit dropping the last couple of days, and saw three of these buggers together this morning. Gonna get them before any more fruit gets affected.
