Apple powdery mildew, will it infect a type of fruit tree?
Hello. Have an apple tree in my yard that produces green apples (don't know the exact variety). The leaves and fruit are covered in a white mold (guessing "apple powdery mildew", but not 100% on that -do not have a picture). It is a somewhat small apple tree and am considering removing the tree and replacing with a paw paw (or two). Would the replacement paw paw be immune to the mold infesting my current apple tree? If not, is there a recommended treatment to the ground prior to planting the new tree(s)?
