Mango Trees
Q.

Why do the mangoes get spoilt from inside and at the harvest time the flowers fall off?

Zone Ratnagiri | anjalicoh added on April 18, 2017 | Answered

What is the reason for the mangoes showing white patches when we cut the mangoes open? Is it because of excess heat or because of climate, or is it that no proper pesticide is given or no proper grafting is done? What is the reason? Because of this problem every year, we cannot sell our mangoes to the clients, and our business is not expanding. Please suggest ways to help with this problem.

The third and fifth pictures look very much like a disease is affecting your fruits, possibly caused by a fungus. I am not sure what the disease is, but if you provide some more information, it might help us figure it out.

Where are you located? Are there any spots, color changes or other problems with the leaves? These can help you determine what the problem is. Also, do the white patches appear when the fruit is still on the tree, or only after you harvest it (postharvest)?

I'm not sure where you are located, but if there is an agricultural extension service or agricultural university near you, it is a good idea to contact them. They will know more about the common problems in your area and how to treat them.

Here are some websites you can check for more information:
