Peach leaf curl caused by the fungus Taphrina deformans is a very common disease in this State during the spring and early summer. In addition to attacking both edible and flowering peaches, the fungus also attacks nectarines, almonds and apricots. When preventive measures are neglected the disease may be anticipated yearly commencing in spring.
