Serviceberry fungus

Asked July 11, 2019, 10:50 AM EDT

We purchased 2 service berries this spring from nursery in vt. They quickly started looking poorly. Fruit is covered with fungus. Should I snip off all fruit and dispose of properly?
Thank you

Thank you for your question. One possibility is serviceberry rust, but we cannot diagnose or give further advice without a closeup photo. Will try to help with more info. Thanks!
