Apricot attack

All my peaches, nects, apples, & pears are spotless.

But Japanese beetles just showed up.

This is on all my apricots. What might I be looking at.



That is probably peach scab. Its very common on some varieties of apricot. The upper-right one looks like bacterial spot, those smaller spots that are more purple.

Most of my apricots are coming out this fall.

Replacing them with peaches and nects.

18 fruits on 7 five year old trees and all have this and after total zero last 2 years.

Mine all look like a variation of that…either scab or spot or both. puget Gold is very ugly this year…last year it was very clean…too much rain early on.

Is it fool’s gold to try to grow apricots in the East? I’ve considered planting a few, but it seems like they are very difficult to grow in this part of the country- what with the humidity, disease and bloom killing late freezes. In general are they way harder to grow here than peaches?
