What is going on with my mango leaves?
« on: January 15, 2021, 02:30:45 PM »
Hello again, my keitt mango tree has some black spots on some leaves.
Is this something that I should be concerned about?
The back of the leaves are fine.

Could this be anthracnose, bacterial black spot or fungus?
How can this be treated?

Should I pluck out the leaves with black spots?

Be very careful and mindful of what you sow, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

I have been seeing something similar on a few leaves recently, the bottom side of the leaves looks like this:



The brownish bleeding around the spots look like anthracnose to me, so Iíve been plucking them whenever I see it. I take the leaves inside and throw them in with the regular garbage to mitigate the chances it spreads.
