Fruit – Following A Spray Schedule

Q: I have apple, peach and plum trees that will not produce mature fruit. There is plenty of fruit initially but it rots and falls off before it matures.

A: Insects and diseases love fruits as much as we do! In order to consistently have ripe fruit, you need to follow a spray schedule, using either organic or synthetic products. Spraying should start when plants are blooming, a date that’s just around the corner. I have details about this at the Fruit – 2020 Homeowner Spray Guide. If you can keep the squirrels at bay, you’ll have something to enjoy!
