apple tree

Asked June 1, 2016, 11:40 AM EDT

We planted 3 Apple trees in our yard and in the last 2 weeks they all have started getting small yellow to dark brown spots. We are not sure what to do for this and I was told to ask the extension office for Kent county. They are honey-crisp, Pink Lady and Red Delicious I believe.

Hello,

It could be a variety of diseases. Does either of these diseases look like what you're seeing?

From the pictures it looks like you may have cedar-apple rust (the orange spots) and the start of a summer rot.

Fruit Tree and plant guard is rated 'fair' to 'excellent' for controlling both of your problems.
