peach tree leaves

Hi

I live in central nj, purchased my peach tree 2 years ago from harvestman and am really enjoying taking care of her. Last year we removed the peaches and this year are looking forward to harvest!

There are a few leaves on the tree that looks like this. I don't see any pests on the leaves.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Kathy

Nope, I have peach leaf curl. Don't know what is wrong with your leaves. So sorry.

Sometimes my leaves on my peach do that too, mostly on new leaves. Kinda deformed I guess. Could be something nibbling on it or, at the worst, shothole. Looks like it is just a deformity. Keep an eye out for bugs though and if the holes get worse, it could be shothole

It is shot-hole. There are several diseases that give it. The main treatment is copper at leaf fall and copper at pink in the early spring. There isn't much to do about it now other than thinning out the limbs a bit to make sure enough sun is getting in. Sun helps dry leaves quickly and limits diseases.

Kathy, re-reading your post I see you only have a few leaves with the problem. I wouldn't worry so much, its when it covers the whole tree that its a problem. Still I would consider the copper dormant spray as a preventative.
