A Technical Report from The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories

Blossom wilt occurs throughout the world where stone fruits are grown and where there is adequate rainfall during the blossoming and fruit ripening period. Blossom wilt affects peaches, cherries (Figure 1), plums, apricots and almonds with equal severity. Losses result primarily by rotting of the fruit in the orchard (up to 50-75%) and during transit and marketing (rest of the crop). Yields may also be reduced by destruction of the flowers during the blossom blight stage of the disease.
