Peach Leaf Curl is a fungal disease which attacks the leaves of peaches and nectarines, leaving them blistered and distorted before they eventually fall and place the tree under stress. Attaching the clear heavy-duty PVC covers, complete with heavy-duty zip, to the framework of the Wall/Fence Fruit Tree Protector during the winter months will help prevent the spread of fungal spores by raindrops. The covers also provide a greenhouse-like shelter for extending the growing season.
