I got a patio peach tree from Lowes a few years ago and the past 2 or 3 years, it blooms beautifully and then half the leaves come out distorted and twisted. Is it a disease or something I can fix? I've enclosed a few photos for diagnosis. Thanks. - Joe

A fungus of some type? Do you spray this tree with anything?

(This thread was originally posted to the Trees and Shrubs forum but I moved it here in the hopes of getting you some answers.)

Looks like Taphrina deformans (peach leaf curl) http://extension.psu.edu/plants/gardening/fphg/stone/disease...
