What is wrong with my apple trees - blotched leaves etc

eamonx1September 25, 2012

I have five apple trees for about five years. They have been unsuccessful, in the sense that each year the leaves become blotched and the apples are scarred. I noticed this year when the blossoms came on the trees the presence of black flies. I sprayed them with soapy water, but feel it was already too late. I am uploading before photos of a typical blotched leave and a scarred apple.

What advice can you give me to solve this problem.

Apple scab affects both the leaves and fruit. It could be something else but to tell we'd need more to go on.
