Nectarine has rotten split pit, grey black mold, no bugs..

Hi,
Most of our Nectarines have a rotted split pit inside, with grey, black mold. The outside seems solid and ok if the pit was not nasty. Some are ok and good.

The tree was sprayed with peach leaf curl, a sulfar based spray before the buds.

The bad ones do not have any bugs inside or any sign of holes. The are somewhat wrinked and do have sap on the skin.

Any ideas of what is the problem and how to fix it. I do have pics of them.

Thanks

Re: Nectarine has rotten split pit, grey black mold, no bugs..

It appears to be the soil problem + Moisture

Try this

To clean the soil from bacteria, Peel an onion, cut small pieces, bury each piece
two inches deep away from the plant. The soil will be free of bacteria.

To get rid of pests on the plant, Mis garlic & ginger into a paste like ointment

Disolve this in half a pail of water, leave it for 24 hours, then spray.
This may help

Do keep me informed of the developments

This should help you out. Pretty common disorder of peaches/nectarines.

Cheers

IT APPEARS THAT SULFUR CURED SOME ASPECTS, LEFT ANOTHER REACTION.
The actual cause was that the soil spread thru the roots to reach the fruits.
As an organic gardener, it is easy to cure this problem, which I did for Apple
Growers with success.

Just peel fresh Ginger, cut in slices, place each slice in a hole 2/3 inches,file the soil
3 feet away from the plant, put some around the plant.

The Peaches will no pests in its core, it also enhance its appearance.

Request do keep me informed of the results
