Clear Gel Forming on My Peaches

arkansasfarmer added on May 21, 2011 | Answered

What is it? We have had 22 inches of rain in the last three weeks but with raised beds and bed and tread garden, we are doing OK! We have a lot of fruit on all the trees in the orchard. . . apple, pear, plum, cherry, and peach. However, forming on the peaches is a clear gel. I have sprayed the gel off with a strong flow of water, and have been spraying a mix of Neem oil, soap shield/copper sulfate when I get a chance in between rain drops. What is the gel, and what would you do?
