I got another input from Dr Crane -- who believes it to be solarization, where cold temps and high light cause cell damage. Interesting. It must be a combination of iron deficiency and solarization.

elp! What the hack is this? Is this just a super severe iron deficiency? Younger leaves are most affected.

I thought Dr. Crane was a ficticious sitcom character.  You mean Frasier was really a doctor?

:-) He's pretty dang smarty pants ain't he. I figured between the 3 gurus (Har, Dr Crane, and Dr Campbell) I'd get a pretty good diagnosis :-).

Would need to see the condition of the entire tree, but that leaf looks indicative of normal spring leaf drop, where older leaves yellow and drop.

Correct.  Old leaves drop during new growth flush, especially during dry weather.

Hello all, I was hoping to take advantage of the knowledge of some of the mango experts in here.. I wanted to know if this is a deficiency ?



I just drenched and foliar fed today with Ironite plus ( best I could find) has chelated iron, zinc, magnesium, and boron.

I'm not an expert, but that thing looks like it's related to my ex-wife.
You guys in Florida sure have a lot of bugs.
First thing I noticed when I moved to San Diego 40+ years ago was the absence of bugs - in warm weather, we can leave the sliding glass door out to our patio open all day without the screen.  Only have to close the screen door at night when the inside lights attract moths.

They are also on the leaves of the tree, it's an odd looking beetle and it flys pretty damn good. I'll post some pics of the leaves it is eating (or I think he's eating it) just the edge of the leafs are eaten

Magnesium deficiency.

The tip burn may be from an episode of water-logging, from excess sea salt, or fertilizer burn.

Humid climates means more bugs, more fungus, more plant diseases. Much of California commercial agriculture is done in dry areas that water is brought to. It depends on this irrigation. So commercial growers in California can cut back on pesticides...at least that's my theory.

In Florida our water comes from the sky. In California you have to bring the water to the tree or other plant
