Rotten Apples

gardener780August 31, 2013

Hello. I'm having some trouble with my crab apple tree. For the last few years, my apples have been turning out like this. I haven't tried any pesticides not knowing which pests to target and how it will affect the fruit. Has anybody dealt with this before and does anybody know what can be causing this? Much appreciated!

Do you have any sort of agricultural authority or info center in Cambodia? If so, those would be the folks to speak with.

Some sort of disease. Don't know what's common in your region so unable to suggest management. One thing for certain, discard all affected fruits.

the dry brown cracking looks like scab, it also apears you have spots of some brown rot.
