Apricot Disease-Shot Hole Disease

Wilsonomyces carpophilus Shot hole disease may kill buds during winter and cause spots on fruit and leaves in spring. If severe, leaf drop may occur in spring. Fruit lesions are light brown with dark purple margins and usually are clustered on the upper sides of fruit. Fruit spotting can be severe, and as fruits mature, spots become scablike and may flake off, leaving roughened areas beneath. Leaf spots fall out (shot hole).
