Cherry Leaf Spot (PPFS-FR-T-06)

Cherry leaf spot occurs on both sweet and sour cherry trees; however, it is considerably more serious on sour cherries. Premature defoliation from cherry leaf spot reduces flower bud set for the next year, weakens trees, and increases sensitivity to winter injury.

PPFS-FR-T-06This recently updated one-page fact sheet on cherry leaf spot discusses symptoms, cause, disease development, and disease management.

Cherry Leaf Spot (PPFS-FR-T-06) is available online.
