Hi there,

We have a young (4 year old) Cox's Orange Pippin in our garden. When I examined it today I see some of the leaves are white and powdery as compared to others (see lower part of photo). Is this a fungal growth? As well as removing and destroying the affected leaves what else should I do? (I've searched online but it seems some remedies that are permitted in the US aren't allowed in the EU so wanted to be sure.)

Thanks in advance,

paul

Could be frost damage to flowers or else they have been pollinated and flowers petals falling off as fruit swells keep eye on it.
