plum disease question

We've had very tropical weather with lots of rain last three weeks. Seems to have defeated the magic of my Earli-magic plum tree. Looks like most plums are heading to early rot.

Nothing below the surface and the malady isn't affecting nearby J. plum varieties. Anyone know what this is?

Could be early stages of brown rot/black rot.

RE: plum disease question

Could be, but I've never seen it here like that. The brown rot has always come later- plus the tree was sprayed with Indar 3 weeks ago. I will put some Indar on the tree when I get a chance to try to rescue some of the crop.

I've never gotten black rot on plums so I don't know how it would look.

RE: plum disease question

Could be injury, birds pecking?

RE: plum disease question

I don't think it is animal or insect injury, haven't seen anything in the tree and I have plenty of other plums including a couple of methelys which ripen at about same time that have no similar damage.

RE: plum disease question

sure looks like some type of fungal disease to me.
