Hi. Mango trees are very susceptible to bark fungus. If this is not controlled, all the shoots will come to nothing. I used to grow mangoes up on the Tropic of Capricorn with very little problem except the dreaded bark fungus which required treating with Lime-sulpher emulsion. They were Bowen Special actually. Living in Sydney now I have a Bowen in the back yard that did NOTHING for twelve years, so, having no emulsion I diluted the Lime-sulpher liquid from Bunnings and painted it on the bark. 120 mangoes within months. This is a recurring problem after a wet and the possums are welcome to their share.
