Peach leaf curl

Asked May 9, 2019, 12:02 PM EDT

My young tree age 4 has lots of young peaches on it but it has some leaves with leaf curl. What can I do now that there are fruit on the tree? Thank you.

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, it is too late in the season to do anything about it now. Either a treatment will be ineffective, or you run the risk of killing pollinators, or both. Here is an OSU publication that can help you control this problem for next year's crop: https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/catalog/files/project/pdf/em8419.pdf

Good luck!
