I have two nectarine trees and one peach tree. All three of them are having a difficult time getting going this year. The leaves are only coming out here and there (it’s almost June!). I’m in the GTA (near Toronto). Any ideas?
Two years ago I had one peach tree. The leaves started to wrinkle up and fall off, and this was the first year we had fruit on the tree. Then last year the tree seemed to be ok, no fruit because of hard freeze. This year the wrinkle leaf is back and fruit is starting to form, but the condition is worse than the first year. What can I do to get rid of this problem? Will it spread to my nectarine tree?
I have a two year old nectarine tree which was very healthy – and I was looking forward to the first summer fruit – until the last month.
A main branch coming off the truck has tree sap oozing out at a number of sites. It looks like the main truck has what MAY be the beginning of wounds in 4 or 5 places as well, but no sap. Other than that the new growth this year looks very good. DO I let the tree fight this on it’s own? My garden is completely organic/no pesticides and I usually have no pest problems that get out of control. Thank you.
My nectarines are growing but are oozing a clear sap out of all the fruit. Some of the fruit are splitting and have brown freckles. It doesn’t look like rot, but just lots of blemishes. Its not oozing from the trees but from the fruit itself
I have a nectarine tree that I thought had completely died; however, this spring the rootstock sprouted. Should I leave it alone? Can rootstock produce fruit of any use? I know the odds are for an inferior fruit, but I have no idea what the actual difference is between the fruiting abilities of the scion and rootstock. If it will make usable fruit (even if it’s not nursery quality), I will probably keep it as it’s already there.
What should I do? My cherry, nectarine, peach and plum tree have lots of fruit but this week I notice fruit are falling. All of these plants are two years old.
A large branch, about 20% of the tree, with developing fruit has died and another is dying. What to do?
