Golden Sap on Peach tree
I'm new here, so bear with me. I have a peach tree, I don't know how old it is. I'm going to say that its about 25 years old. I'm not sure how well it was taken care of before we moved here.
But right now, its oozing golden colored sap. Its not sticky, its hard. The peaches always bud but never grow to be more than just a pit with some skin on it. The peaches also have this golden sap coming from them, where the stem meets the fruit.
I know I need to prune the tree and I plan on doing that soon.
I don't mind that if it doesn't make fruit, but I would like to make it healthy so I can keep it in my yard. Its one of my favorite trees.
Does anyone know what the sap could be from? What kind of disease it could be, and if it could be cured?
I'll try to post some pictures later of what the sap looks like.
Thank y'all so much!
