Black sapote Disease?

    3 responses

Shane starts with ...
Hi, we have a Black sapote that is about 2 years old and I have noticed that at the beginning of some branches are splitting, I have attached 2 photos.
Is this something I should be worried about and should prune these branches off.
Thanks
Shane

The damage looks as though it happened some time ago due to the amount of scar tissue. Perhaps the wood fibre that can be seen poking out of the wound was caused by a boring insect or larvae as it emerged from the branch.

Even if these branches are no longer infected they are deformed. They should be pruned from the tree to avoid growing into large branches with a weak defect that might break under load.

Dissecting the branch may give clues as to what type of organism is responsible.

Hi there,
I have grown 3 Black Sapotes & have potted them up twice. Photo 2 shows their second year size ranging from 65-80cm.
They have been growing well, sheltered on my front veranda, Phillip Island Vic., for the past 18mths.
Photo1 shows a leaf with blackened area on its edge & this has affected a few leaves on two plants.
Can anyone tell me what it may be & how to treat it, if it is a fungal disease or growth problem.
I thank you in anticipation.
Cheers Maria.
