Is this OFM damage?

Hi,




I preface this post by saying that last year I had severe hail that caused massive amounts of broken limbs and severely damaged branches that I kept anyway.

Is this damage caused by OFM? It’s not just the tips but side branches as well…it was getting dark when I took these pics

It’s too early for OFM based on my climate at least … the shoots are usually 6" or so long before the OFM shows up. It could be brown rot blossom blight, or some of the limbs that were damaged may have self-pruned. Or maybe your OFM are not like my OFM.

Most branches are normal and the peaches still have shucks attached so maybe it’s too early like you said
