Peach tree problem
I have a peach tree and although it sets fruit I never harvest anything edible. It either just falls off or usually are small with "stings" early on that seep a sticky sap and then rot as they grow. It was suggested I use a double dose of Sevin spray at blossom set time to "thin" the set to get larger peaches and that seemed to work. I got larger peaches than I had been but still they all have the seeping stings. Does anyone know a spray program i.e. time and type spray that will work. I try not to use pesticides but it seems the only way I'll get any peaches. I may just cut the tree down and plant another. It may be infested to the point of no return as it looks a little worse every year. It's 5 or 6 years old I think. Organic is my first choice but I'd really like to get some peaches worth spending time to put up.
