HS1369: Bacterial Black Spot (BBS) of Mango in Florida

Figure 2. Symptoms of anthracnose (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides). Note the lesions are round and sunken into the pulp (A and B). The lesions may coalesce to form large necrotic areas, and the peel may crack. Tear staining occurs when lesions spread from the top shoulder-stem-end part of the fruit toward the apex (bottom) of the fruit.
