You have several problems from borers to mineral deficiency.

Contact your county agent for more help. There are many peach orchards in Gillespie County and the county agent usually holds short courses about fruit crops.

Jim Kamas is the Horticulture CEA but is on special assignment with the Texas Viticulture & Fruit Lab. Jim can be reached through our office for special needs related to fruit tree management.
