Bring samples to John at Stoney Ridge Fruit Farm for diagnosis and discussion from 9am to 5pm during the Hill and Valley Exploration tour. This photo is of an apple with Sooty Blotch and Fly Speck. Late season application of fungicide will make a more traditionally attractive fruit, but what about the toxic chemicals used? Despair at the choice? Don’t do it! There are other options for reducing damage from disease and pest; John is happy to share his knowledge. Stop on in for the sauce on Apples!
