Mango Tree has very limited fruit.

Hi Yates team,
I have 15 years (approx.)old Mango tree. The location is Perth WA.Last year it gave a lot of flowers during early spring time but a very limited developed into fruit. Most of the flowers fell and some fruit also fell when it was very small . Previously it had produced a lot of fruit. Please advise.

Answer: Hi Sajid,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Mangoes do like a regular feed and water. Ensure that you feed regularly with a product like Yates Thrive Naturals Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food to promote healthy leaves and fruit as well.

The fruit drop off the tree may be due to lack of nutrients, water stress or other stresses on the tree. One of the main issues that can affect mangoes is called anthracnose. You will notice black spots appearing on the leaves, flowers and fruits. This can be treated with Yates Liquid Copper.

The final thing to check with the tree is the soil pH. Mangoes do best in a neutral soil of around 6.5. If your soil is higher or lower on the spectrum, you will need to alter this to assist with nutrient absorption and growth.

Kind regards
