Healthy mango tree root color?
« on: March 30, 2020, 03:35:50 PM »
What color should healthy roots be on mango trees? Pretty much all the ones I've seen are brown or reddish brown, compared to roots of citrus or other plants that are white, off-white or yellowish in color. Is this normal for mango tree roots to be brown or dark in color?
Thanks!

yes

Thanks. Makes it difficult to tell if any pathogens are present.

you will see when they are mushy, get easy broken then they are damaged. Mango roots don't like to be disturbed
