Peach Leaf Curl

Leaves of Peach tree infected with Taphrina deformans.  Unlike many other diseases this one does not recycle.  It is essentially a one shot deal and the affected leaves will occur early in the season and then the game is over.  Gather up infected leaves and burn to to help remove the source of the spores for reinfection.   A dormant spray (before the leaves break out of the buds in the spring is the best method of control.
