Most of the other leaves are spotted without the edge issue. Thanks again. This is an additional pic from the previous post.

RE: Another photo of apple tree leaves

I think it's Cedar Apple Rust, very common apple disease. Some varieties are more susceptible than others.

There is spray for it. I use myclobutanil, the brand I use called Immunox. (Not Immunox Plus).

Here's some info.

Here is a link that might be useful: Cedar Apple Rust (CAR)

RE: Another photo of apple tree leaves

I agree - that looks like the CAR on my tree. Even when spraying with Immunox every 2 weeks, my leaves are always at least spotted like that, but without the spray, the apples would all be deformed too.

RE: Another photo of apple tree leaves

This does look like Cedar Apple Rust. The first picture, in the other post, didn't. You might have two different issues. I've got a tree that gets Cedar Apple Rust, and then several that get leaves that look like the picture in your first post.

RE: Another photo of apple tree leaves

Spraying for CAR now won't work. It has to be done in the early spring, around bloom time.

RE: Another photo of apple tree leaves

Thanks for the responses everyone. The original post looked different as haldog mentioned so I just pulled those leaves off. Should I just hope for the best and treat when dormant and early spring next year?
