Florida mango question
« on: May 20, 2016, 02:29:14 PM »
My mango tree has some leaf spotting I was wondering If anyone could assist in diagnosing. I am relatively new with mangoes so I cannot identify this, as far as I know no fertilizer has been used and it is being watered with well water. New growth looks normal and healthy appears to only affect older leaves, tree appears not as dense and green as healthy mango trees in the area.

Looks like bacterial spot.  Spray might help.

Looks healthy to me. I wont worry aboutcspots on yellowing old leaves. They gonna be dropping soon (natural process). Looks like julie mango to me. Just the bottom half dosent mabye due to the angle. The old woody stem and branches look juliesque as well.
