Scars from Peach Leaf Curl (Taphrina deformans) remain on the leaves
Marks of the past. Early in the spring the tree was severely infected with Taphrina deformans or leaf curl. Wet and cold weather prolonged the infection that some of the fruits were affected. Some of the leaves show some reminders of the previous infection. I marvel at they way this tree persevered through all that stress. By early spring, the tree was totally defoliated by the fungal leaf curl. However, as soon as the temperatures got warmer new leaves developed and they photosynthesized like there's not tomorrow - filling up all the fruits that developed.
