Bad apples

Asked August 5, 2015, 4:44 PM EDT

Our apple tree produces lots of fruit but the apples all have brown speckles. Any idea what could cause this and how I can remedy the problem? Thanks!

Looks Like apple scab. Do you spray with any fungicides.

Here is guide for spraying. Scab is a disease that is worse in wet springs. Sprays of the fungicide must go on before infection. Check out the spray schedule in the following publication.
