Brown Rot on Peaches

Zone 19053 | whitneyroad27 added on August 2, 2016 | Answered

I love this website! I just moved into a house with a peach, apple and pear tree in the backyard. Being that it is August, I am guessing we are late into the peach season already. I believe the peach tree has brown rot--some of the peaches look mummified. I am wondering if I should buy something like Captan to spray, or is it too late to spray when the fruit has already bloomed? Please help, I know absolutely nothing but am desperately trying to learn. Thank you for your time!
