Peach Leaf Curl
WHAT IS PEACH LEAF CURL
Peach Leaf Curl is a fungal disease that affects all parts of the peach tree, including its leaves, flowers, and fruits. It is most prevalent in years with cool, we spring seasons. This disease can also affect nectarines.
SIGN OF PEACH LEAF CURL
Peach leaf curl will occur during the spring and summer, affecting newly emerged leaves. If infected, your peach tree’s leaves will start to curl and develop red spots. The curled leaves will eventually turn yellow and fall off of the tree.
How to Treat
- Prevention – To help prevent this disease, prune peach trees properly in the fall to maximize sun exposure and airflow throughout the tree. Preventative fungicide applications can be made after the leaves fall off the tree and before the new leaves begin to bud out. Follow all instructions on the product label.
- Fertilizer – Trees affected by this disease will lose their leaves prematurely. Give your tree all the nutrients it needs to quickly grow a new set of leaves with Super Charged Moon Juice and Moon Microboost.
- Treatment – Spray affected tree with systemic fungicide, being sure to get thorough coverage on all leaves. Couple with a copper treatment each dormant season to keep your trees free of disease. Follow all instructions on product labels.
