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.

You may want to call your local office for further help.
