Peach Scab

Peach scab caused by fungus
Peach scab caused by fungus in Bellmore, NY

Question:

Hello, is there any way someone can tell me what this is on my peaches? Are the peaches still edible? My tree this year suffered from Peach Leaf Curl. Thank you for your help.

Bellmore NY, August 2016  

Answer:

What you have on your peaches looks like peach scab caused by a fungus (Cladosporium carpophilum Thuem). The fruits are still edible.
