Problem with Mango Tree

    3 responses

RobynMcK starts with ...
A couple of years ago we purchased a property (Sunshine Coast, Qld) with 6 established bowen mango trees, each fully mature and very tall (probably at least 20 years old). We moved in at the end of the summer season while the trees were still fruiting. The next season we had 2 mangos (total) from the 6 trees. Last year we had about 6 or 8 fruit (total). This year, all trees have flowered profusely and baby fruit are starting to form. Millions and millions (probably a slight exaggeration :-) .. all 1cm to 3cm in size so far. Now my problem is that they are all turning black and falling off, even the end of the branch (the last 30cm or so) is dropping from the trees. What is going wrong? I was so excited to get so many fruit. Any help appreciated.

I've just moved to a property at Ningi and my tree is doing the exact same thing. I've been scouring the net for days trying to get an answer but can't find anything. I'm going to try and get to a nursery in chermside on the weekend and talk to them. I've been told they specialise in fruit trees. Will let you know what I find.

My guess is, it can be ANTHRACNOSE or Bacterial Black Spot.

It's quite common in our coastal humidity.

One solution is to spray constantly or grow varieties that is more resistant. Unfortunately, Bowen/KP is quite prone to it.

Like Brian said most probably Anthracnose.... You will need to spray with a copper fungus solution at the time of flowering & doit every 2 to 3 weeks whilst it flowers.....
