Pests in Gardens and Landscapes

Leaf scorch—Diplocarpon earlianum

Leaf scorch causes purple spots to occur on upper leaf surfaces. The spots may run together, leaving the leaf looking burnt or scorched. Fruit may appear streaked or have sunken areas.

Solutions

Leaf scorch is favored by wet weather. Some varieties may be resistant.
