Mango
« on: May 01, 2021, 11:37:38 PM »
Hi
I like mangoes.   We have 2, 6ft trees, 3 and 4 years old.  They have both flowered and some small fruit are starting.   On one of the trees the flowers are brittle and crumble when touched.   Is this normal or a possible disease.   Im sure that not all flowers become fruit but want to make sure We live in Los Angeles ca
Thanks Bob

Posting a pic would help determine what's going on.

Is it black with powdery, spider-web like strands?  It could be powdery mildew

Sounds like the pannicles have run their normal course of life.

Normal for flowers to dry and fall off after serving their purpose. Now its just a matter of waiting to see is if the panicles have any viable fruit.
