Fruit trees

Zone Krugersdorp | Dawn added on November 10, 2016 | Answered

I inherited a couple of fruit trees. I am not sure if they are peach or apricot. They are suffering from some kind of disease which inhibits the growth of the fruit. I have been unable to identify the problem and hope that you can help.

Bacterial leaf spot caused by Xanthomonas campestris could cause the oozing gum on the surface of your fruit. Check for spots, holes, and discoloration on the leaves, as in the following article:
