Answer: peach bubble

Dear Simona,

there peach bubble is a disease caused by a mushroom, called Taphrina deformans; it develops especially when the climatic conditions are favorable, that is high humidity, and wide temperature ranges from day to night. The fungus affects all the tissues of the plant, even though it generally tends to prefer leaves and shoots; the leaves affected by the peach bubble show changes in the tissues, which are reminiscent of bubbles, where the leaf page thickens, deforms and becomes yellow or bright red. It is clear that this parasite is very harmful for the plant, as well as for the fact that it also attacks fruits and wood, also because the affected leaves are not able to carry out photosynthetic activity, with consequent deterioration of the entire plant. Generally, treatments are carried out with copper-based products, in the preventive phase, when the buds begin to present themselves, and subsequently at regular intervals, or only when the climate becomes particularly conducive to the development of the disease. With the arrival of the heat, generally the mushroom tends to stop its development, therefore often, in case of late appearance of the bubble, it is preferred to do a single treatment with a copper-based product, and simply remove the diseased leaves, that will be destroyed. If you want the problem not to recur, it is advisable to practice an autumn treatment, when the leaves have fallen, and another in late winter or early spring, always with products based on copper and sulfur.
