Leaf Disease on a Large Avocado Tree in Hawaii


Anonymous added on January 30, 2018 | Answered

The leaves have developed rust-colored spots that do not scrape off. We have had a very wet winter. Would it help to rake up leaf debris under the tree and then fertilize it? The huge tree is covered with flowers. The spots seem to match pictures of a fungus found on a number of sites. No other leaf problems--just the spots.
