Q.White Jelly Like Substance on My Peaches
The peaches on my peach tree have a white jelly like substance oozing out of the peaches. The peaches are also rotting on the tree. I also have ants on the tree. The peaches don’t appear to be getting any larger. Should I prune it back? What sort of chemicals should I spray on the tree? The tree is about 5 years old. It is a self-pollinating peach tree. We have never been able to enjoy the fruit from it. Can you help me?
