Edges of mango leaves turning brown and dry

Mango    None Given

I have a very healthy mango but it has never flowered or fruited. It only develops new leaves but once they grow they turn brown and dry on the edges. There are no pests or anything but the leaves still turn brown. Its is outdoors, in a huge barrel container and has never been fertilized. Whats going on?

I don't know what the problem is but my Nam Doc Mai mango is doing the same thing. I'm currently trying copper fungicide applied weekly for a month or so. I've also added borax and manganese. None of the experts I've consulted recognize the problem. It's not for lack of fertilizer or water. It grows in my yard and is not in a pot.

I suspect it is stressed because of insufficient nutrients, it might be root bound (roots have grown so much the occupy most of the pot)

Transplant it to new potting soil

And you should fertlize it
