Q.Mango tree from seed

Zone Cairo, Egypt | Anonymous added on January 13, 2017 | Answered

I live in Egypt where the weather is currently winter with highs of around 17 degrees and lows of 7 or 10. I have planted a mango tree from seed about 3 months ago. It has been growing very well in my balcony where there is a lot of sun. Lately, however, the leaves have started developing bronze like color at the tip edges of the leaf that works its way inward to occupy the whole leaf. I am wondering is this a disease or is it just a natural wilting because of the winter?

Thanks a lot.

We did not receive the image of your tree.

It could be sun scald on the leaves or even a fungus.
Make sure the leaves are not splashed with water while watering the tree.


Neem Oil can be used to treat the leaves if the problem persists.


Here are some links to refresh you on the care requirements.
