Why were my peaches a dirty looking colour on skin last year but were lovely after peeling? Was it through leaf curl disease or all the wind we had? What is the best fungicide to use in the autumn and where can I buy it? Is it safe to eat the peaches if there is no sign of disease on the fruit? What month is the best time to treat the tree?

It could have been due to brown rot or some other type of fungal disease. I recommend neem oil. It is organic and very effective. It is often sold as fruit tree spray at stores. Check the label.
