plum curc scars - cull now?
I'm seeing lots of plum curculio scars on the 1/2"-1" diameter Asian pears and also on the few plums I have. I think I saw some on the apples, too. I'm not going to spray (although maybe it's too late anyway), and I'm okay with cutting a bad section out of a fruit, but how bad are they going to be? Should I just cull the scarred fruitlets now? If the fruits are going to be ruined I figure I'll be better off culling them now. I've been doing some thinning, and I figure it makes sense to thin the scarred ones first. The curcs won't be able to complete their life cycle in the thinned fruitlets now on the ground, will they? I haven't really noticed the scars on the peaches, but are they there, too, just not as noticeable?
