The miniature one has been infected with brown rot on every fruit (hundreds of fruit) both last 2 years while the double grafted one got leaf curl on every leaf and only produced one fruit which was split.

Treating your peach trees with Lime Sulfur is effective, as long as it is applied at the right time.
We recommend spraying the trees while they are dormant, prior to budswell.  Timing is critical to prevent the leaf curl and brown rot.  Please apply during Winter.  Once Spring has arrived, it may be too late.
