|Pulling off the air plants or rubbing them off the branches is the only safe way to remove them from your mango tree. Spotting leaves can indicate a fungal disease but the tree is sensitive to fungicides so the best control is to cut or pull off the affected leaves. The immature fruits you describe can be the result of poor watering practices or immaturity of the tree. Mangoes seem to grow and produce best when they are given very little water and no fertilizer at all. Hope this information helps!
