Q.

white jelly on my peaches

Zone Queens NY | [email protected] added on June 12, 2014 | Answered

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. 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? I spray them every 2 to 3 weeks with fruit tree spray.
I cut the branches where it was some white jelly and remove some of the peaches. Did the rain have something to do with this, because we had a lot of rain?
