The most important preventable pest for peach trees is peach leaf curl. The fungus responsible for the disease over-winters in cracks in the bark. When the young leaves expand, the fungus attacks them and results in deformed leaves and the flowers and fruit dropping off. When the leaves have expanded to their full size though, they can no longer be infected. Spray the entire tree with Bordeaux Mixture in late January and repeat in mid-February. This way, the fungus will be killed before the leaves expand.
