Post Plum disease
I have a Methley plum that has been miserable with disease since day one. Gummy like substance on fruit and probably more. Suggestions on a general spray and when? Thanks, expertx!

Hello,

The most common plum disease is Prunus ringspot virus. It primarily affects the leaves of the tree, causing yellow rings and mottled spotting. Eventually it leads to leaf deformity and death and can severely limit the tree's development. No cures are available for viral diseases of plums. Removal of the tree is essential to prevent further infection within the orchard.

Correct. Viral diseases are not for the homeowner to cure. Destroy only.

However, fungal and bacterial diseases/infections can be cured.
