Got Peach Leaf Curl?

What is Peach leaf curl?

It is a common fungal disease that affects peach trees and other members of the Prunus genus. It is caused by the fungus Taphrina deformans. This disease typically manifests as distorted, reddish-purple leaves with puckering and curling.


How can I treat it?:

  • As of now (April/Early Spring) it is too late to eliminate this problem. Thankfully, the damage is primarily cosmetic and will not harm your tree though you may lose a few leaves. However, you could apply a foliar spray with a gentle natural fertilizer like our Seaweed Extract by Grow More to help encourage new growth and help your tree grow healthier leaves.


  • The best way to treat Leaf Curl would be to prevent it from happening in the first place with a copper based fungicide like our Liqui-Cop in combination with the Horticultural Oil both by Monterey.
