|How can i get rid of the fungus that develops on my cherry tree which prevents the fruit from developing?|
|You didn't describe the symptoms of the disease so I can only offer limited help. Brown rot is one of the most common diseases among cherry trees. Brown rot infects the cherry tree blossoms, causing them to turn brown, wither and die. This disease also creates brown sunken areas around the twigs and bases of flowers, causes the leaves and twig tips to shrivel, and causes the twig bark and bases of dead flowers to ooze a brown, sticky gum. Brownish spots develop on the cherry fruits and gray and velvety spore masses develop on the twigs or flowers. You can control brown rot on cherry trees by pruning away all diseased leaves, twigs, fruits and flowers. Don't wet the foliage when you irrigate and apply a copper-based fungicide at the pink-bud stage to prevent persistent disease infections.
