Peach tree leaf curl, how to get rid of it

Asked April 29, 2020, 3:29 PM EDT

Please see attached photos. We have 2 peach trees. Both now are loaded with what looks like leaf curl. Did spraying the same this season (late winter / early spring) as was done a year ago. Last year only a few leaves had this and we picked them off. Then the trees leafed out beautifully. But this year so many leaves look bad, it'd be denuded if all leaves picked off. What do we now? What do we next season to prevent this?

Growing stone fruit is difficult in our area because of leaf curl and other diseases.

Dormant season sprays are the recommended course of action in late October and then again in February.

What kind of spray did you use?

The fungicides marked by the "H" in the link below are available for the general public.

Unfortunately, there is not much you can do about it this season.

Good luck.
