Mango leaves turning brown

Mango    None Given

I have had this mango for over a year now. This year I noticed some of the leaves getting a brown/red spot and then eventually dying off. I figured it was fungus and treated it with a fungicide. That did not work. I then bought ladybugs for it hoping it was aphids (even though it really doesn't look like it) Still not any better.

I have fertilized it with CitrusGain plant food and water it daily since I live in Florida and it is in direct sunlight for most of the day.

Any ideas? I am pretty new at this and would hate to kill it.

Photos would be great. Where are you located? Generally that sounds like Anthracnose, which is incredibly common with mangoes and happens when the weather has been quite wet. Depending on where you are, this can be a problem since mango is currently blooming in most tropical areas and Anthracnose can attack the flowers which reduces your yields later on. Immediately before bloom we recommend a copper spray just to knock down disease and protect the flowers.
