peach tree problems

Zone 9 | mturner25 added on April 13, 2012 | Answered

Young peaches are falling off and the ones left on the tree have clear sap drops coming out of them. I can see where something has eaten some of the leaves on one limbs. I have sprayed with a fruit spray fungicide and also Sevin. What could be the problem and what else could I spray?

Soapy water? Could you expand on this on?

doesn't sound like fungus, and in my experience, sevin won't have an effect on any insects eating your peaches or the leaves. have you tried an insecticide, or soapy water maybe? I have used ferti-lome worm treatment on my fruit trees (altho I don't like to use chemicals) but it did work.
