Diseased Apple Trees

eamonx1September 25, 2012

Planted 5 apple trees five years ago - not successful. Every year I end up with scarred apples and blotched leaves. I am uploading photos of a typical leaf and a typical apple. This year I noticed black flies when the trees were in blossom. I sprayed them with soapy water, but think it might have been too late.

Any advice for next year appreciated (in Ireland)

In a wet cool climate my first guess would be apple scab. If that is the case you need to spray the proper fungicides starting during bloom.

Do you get birds pecking at your developing fruit? Some of that damage looks like scab, but some looks like scarring.
