Q.Fig Leaves Late July White Lines And Spots On Leaves, Issues With Fruit And Steps To Take?

Zone ocean view, De. 19970 | dmdistasio added on July 29, 2020 | Answered

The trees have lot of fruit, but they are not yet ripe. A crab apple tree close to the figs have scale on it, but it was treated for scale in June. What can I do to ensure the fruit is not affected by the white on the leaves?

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see what is causing the problem. It could be a scale issue (I would treat more than once, since scale seal themselves to the tree, it will not be effective to treat once without removing most of them first.) but a photo would confirm.

It could, also, be powdery mildew, or any number of diseases that can appear as white spots.

In the meantime, here are some articles that will help:
