… ripe fruit as FRUIT
VALMIKI : OBSERVER OF NATURE: (mixed thread): 1 correct image as above. Valmiki used CHUTA/AMRA for the same tree, in his Ramayan. The common name for this tree is Mango. Scientifically it is known as Mangifera indica. This is what Chakravarti S Venkatesh says in his ” Our Tree Neighbours “, about the etymology of the scientific name.
“Incidentally it will be of interest to know that the Latin name Mangifera is originally derived from the Tamil word Manga for unripe fruit of this tree.”
Mangifera indica – Dandeli WLS:
Came across this tall fruiting mango tree in Dandeli. The fruits were very sweet!

Seems funny, but I thought I got confused. Doesnt leaf look different?
I am going through bad days it seems. I have confusion on Mango tree also :(….
Please tell is it some kind of disease or something else? Is there any remedy to it ?
I have the same problem in my trees. One of the local horticulturalist advised me to cu those branches and burn them. He said that it’s a disease.
It’s an ongoing process of every year.
My problem is those small flies that comes on Mango trees at this time of year. We dont want to use pesticide so any other remedy will be useful if someone can suggest.
Here are two contenders that may be responsible for the symptoms you describe:
1) Anthracnose (Colletotrichumstate of Glomerella cingulata Ston, Spaull and Schrenk) : Severe infection destroys the entire inflorescence resulting in no setting of fruits.Tender shoots and foliage are easily affected which ultimately cause ‘die back’ of young branches. Older twigs may also be infected through wounds which in severe cases may be fatal. Depending on the prevailing weather conditions blossom blight may vary in severity from slight to a heavy infection of the panicles.
2) a) Powdery mildew (Oidium mangiferae Berthet) : The affected flowers and fruits drop pre-maturely reducing the crop load considerably or might even prevent the fruit set. The characteristic symptom of the disease is the white superficial powdery fungal growth on leaves, stalks of panicles, flowers and young fruits. Horticulture world
efloraofindia:” Id 29052012MR1’’ Mango tree with big young leaves at Pune:
28th May 2012 Pune.
Found this Mango tree at a private society at Pune. The branches were cut. It had big sized young leaves almost 11 inches in length. Is it normal for a mango tree to have such big young leaves?. There were other mango trees in the vicinity none were trimmed but none had such big leaves.
One of my highlights of this year’s mango season is a giant Kesar mango. Of all the fruits on the tree, it was the only one that beat the yardstick to reach a size of 11 inches x 5 inches, and weighed an impressive 1.6 kgs! The stone is 9 inches long and 2.2 inches wide at the centre but slender nevertheless!
This mango alone produced around three litres of the most deliciously refreshing Mango Panna concentrate! Hope you enjoy seeing these pictures as much as we relished this luscious drink 😉
For completeness sake let me add these trees also.
There is great variation in the form, size, color and quality of the fruits. They may be nearly round, oval, ovoid-oblong, or somewhat kidney-shaped, often with a break at the apex, and are usually more or less lop-sided.
Sharing a Macro image of Mango flower. I hope U will like this..

Another best ever possible close up of the flower of a very common plant which made it very special … Awesome shot.

Mangifera indica, the mango, a large number of varieties are grown in India and elsewhere in tropical climate.
– I am sending photos of the Alphonso Mango tree planted by me at Pattambi, Kerala. It is a grafted one and the very first year it started flowering, but the flower did not become fruits as I think the tree is very small. Hope it will fruit this year.

MS Nov., 2020/02 Mangifera sp. (khasiana ?) for Id. : 2 images.
Mangifera linearifolia (Mukh.) Kosterm. ???
So it is most likely to be M. khasiana.
Only Mangifera indica and M.sylvatica are recorded in my State- from … as per reply in another thread.
Here the beak of the fruit looks different.
If this is true, it may be M.indica only.
Going by the Mangifera keys, it may be Mangifera indica only.
Re: Mangifera sylvatica? : 7 posts by 4 authors. 4 images.
I guess it is correct ID !
Thanks for the mail. Indeed I’ve seen the Mangifera sylvatica in Andaman, when I was serving in Port Blair. It is of somewhat sour taste.
The fruits of the M sylvatica as per Flora of India, 4.5-6 cm long and 2.5-3 cm wide. The fruits are acuminate with protruded tip in M. khasiana and M. sylvatica. From the photos given, I think it is of M. indica only!
I think this may also turn out to be Mangifera khasiana as per discussions at MS Nov., 2020/02 Mangifera sp. (khasiana ?) for Id.
Only Mangifera indica and M.sylvatica are recorded in my State
Mangifera linearifolia (Mukh.) Kosterm. ??
For your suggested id, pl. see my comments at MS Nov., 2020/02 Mangifera sp. (khasiana ?) for Id.
Could you pl. help us with the description?
Thanks, … Based on the keys at Mangifera khasiana description, we should take it M.indica only

Swamy/New series/ID/50 – Infection on mango tree bark.:
I have received the photographs of a mango tree with some infection/ black formation on the tree. Can any body identify what it is and suggest remedy to over come the problem (infection?).
You can apply a fungicide such as blue copper solution with a paint brush. It might require several applications.
