Pear Scab

Description: Scab first appears on the bottom and later on the side of the fruit. Infected fruit often become misshapen. Scab spores develop during the winter, in infected leaves on the ground. Infection begins at the green-tip stage of flower bud development. Infection is highest when blossoms are open, but continues for about 6-9 weeks.




Solution: Spray Soap-Shield Fungicidal Soap when disease first appears, and repeat at 7-10 day intervals for as long as needed. For optimum control, begin spraying at the green-tip stage of bud development. Repeat at 7-10 day intervals for as long as needed. To reduce disease, remove leaf debris and infected fruit in the fall. Most infected pears can still be eaten if the scabby area is removed.
