- Deep-brown, scabby patches appear on leaves of flowering spurs in spring and later the fruits of apple and pear trees. Infected parts eventually die.

This infection may also cause uneven leaf growth and/or a blistered appearance, and fruits to split and develop brown rot.

Apple spots

I have a young Scrumptios apple tree which fruits well. However the bright red fruit has black spots irregularly on the skin (see photo) . Can anyone advise me how to prevent this next year please? I already grease band the tree.
