My young avocado tree starts to bloom and had some fruits late last year. But now I found brown tiny spots near the vein on every leave. What is it? and what should I do to get rid of it?
Thanks !

Cercospora spot (brown spots on the leaves and fruits), is caused by a fungus. A copper based fungicide will help. Be sure to apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your avocado tree!
