Will a 'Spice Zee' nectaplum need to be sprayed for leaf curl?

I have a new fruit tree, a Spice Zee nectaplum, and I'm very excited. However, everyone I know who has grown a peach or nectarine eventually lost it to leaf curl and other diseases. Will a nectaplum require similar preventative spraying for peach leaf curl?

melle: That's a very new release. Doubt anyone will have experience. My guess is it will need spraying for leaf curl. But you will probably need to call your nursery or better yet Dave Wilson Nursery. You could also email Ed Lavio or Tom Spellman. Their email address is on the Dave Wilson website.

I didn't realize it was a new release! Thank you for suggesting I contact Dave Wilson Nursery--I would not have thought to do that. The nursery I purchased the tree from, or at least the person who helped me, was not familiar with it at all.
