I was psyched we had a peach tree
. The fruit, unfortunately, got invaded by some burrowing bug as soon as it showed up. I've got some nice sized peaches on the tree
now - but wouldn't think about eating it because of all these creatures that have either nested or fed (I don't know which). Here are some pics of the peaches, though I don't know that I did a good job showing the gooey sap that formed what looks like a gall on the outside of the peach around the hole made by the burrower.
In the top cluster of 3, the one on the left (on the bottom of the peach) makes the damage done most visible of all in the picture. Unable to get a closeup, but this has been going on since the fruit first appeared - first it looked like a blob of clear stuff bubbled over the hole. I hope that makes sense. Looking for suggestions for next year so we might be able to eat some!
Here are some closer pics of some...none really show the damage as described above, but do show black spots...not sure what that's about either.
Thanks for any insight!
