Here's what flyspeck apple disease looks like.

Being new to apple growing, it was pretty disappointing to find these black dots on the apples of our first crop.

We've learned that this is a fungus caused by certain conditions and is controllable. Here is a good article we found on the cause of flyspeck apple disease and how to control it. https://www.gardeningknowhow.c...

If anyone has tips, suggestions or experiences, please post about them! Thumbs up

Yikes. That looks exactly as its name.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
