AOut­door peach trees are prone to the fun­gal dis­ease peach leaf curl. The spores at­tack wet leaves in spring and cause the fo­liage to turn red and curled. If the peach is against a wall, erect a cover to keep the plant dry in spring. On dry days, use a small paint­brush to hand pol­li­nate the flow­ers, which will im­prove your chances of fruit.
