Peach disease

Anonymous added on June 2, 2015 | Answered

Growths appear on the twigs of our peach tree, They are white and seem to have come through the bark. They seem to be mostly at 'junctions' and are a bit like sticky candy floss if you pull them off. They don't seem to grow much, to about half a centimetre max, and oval in shape with the dark bark they have pushed through still on one end of the white stuff. I can't find a picture on any website and therefore don't know what it is, or what to spray with. Can you advise please? Many thanks - Richard Gordon
