Quince tree, leaf problem, fungicide
I previously posted that I was interested in a quince tree (cydonia)and ten days ago I bought one at Flower World, smyrna variety, about 10 ft at its heighest point.
Its now starting to flower, but I am also noticing some leaf damage, turning brown and shriveling up. Yesterday, someone else remarked that they also had a quince, and they had to apply a fungicide every year before it flowered o/w the leaves would get brown and curl up and it would look crappy.
Is this par for the course for Quince? Is it fire blight, rust etc and if so what fungicide should I use or is it too late for this season?
The canopy of my tree is much more full on one side than the other, and the not full side is where the problem is now. Suggestions?
