Well that is exciting stuff!  I suggest you start a separate thread on techniques and nutrition to promote mango cold-hardiness.

The gloomy opinion I expressed is based on damage reports from Homestead, Florida, including the Fruit and Spice Park, after the freezes of 1984 and 1989.  Temperature there reached 24.5-degrees F.

Seems this disease doesn't only affect mangos
This appears to be the same thing on jackfruit and also on soursop, perhaps anonas
I'm going to have to start spraying my jackfruit
I've lost three of them this season.

Although that disease on the Jackfruit may well respond to the same spray regimen, it is unlikely to be the same bacteria that attacks the mangos.

yep !! I've had to start spraying my jacks and soursops with fungicide. Jury still out on what's up with the annonas. I feel like it could have to do with the seed borer, which opens a pathway for disease. We've been bagging the annonas. Rollinia has also had a terrible problem with fungus / bacterial infection, likely due to seed borers. Growing in FL can be a pain in the neck!

Jeff,When you say you're bagging them are you using plastic bags of some sort to  encase them, or are you using the fine screen type bags

Thanks Hat
I will start spraying with copper and see if it helps
