I just received my first ever mango tree, I planted it in the ground with a mixture of nature care garden soil, compost and a bit of native soil. I'm not sure if the soil is burning the plants because some leaves are turning brown from the middle, can anyone tell me a good soil for mangoes or fruit trees in general

There tropical, so need shade from hot afternoon sun.
Your soil mix has probably has some fertilizer in it. So wait a few months before fertilizing, with I believe a citrus fertilizer.
If your ground it well draining.
