My peach tree has been affected by the neighbors use of soil sterilant. Some of the limbs are dieing. Is the fruit safe to eat?

A soil sterilant is a long lasting herbicide.

I would suggest contacting the manufacturer of the specific product used to inquire on the chance of residual chemical being in your fruit.

I personally would no consume the fruit as a precaution.

Here is an article that has more information for you.
