Brown rot on victoria plum tree
Please, please help me, am a new Gardener/allotmenteer with a 12' Victoria Plum Tree. In September 2013 took on an established allotment 5mins from home, thought I could observe things growing for the first year to see how things went, well anyway, this year place a pheromone trap in tree as I read that's what u have to do to control plum fly.
The tree has produced a shed load of fruit but recently noticed them going brown, a few days ago realised things were NOT good when discovered this unsightly mess on some fruits, with a bit of research discovered BROWN ROT!
I have removed diseased fruits now, but am concerned as quite a lot seem to be showing signs.
My question is if I remove ALL fruits can I salvage some and are they edible when ripe or will I have to destroy all? Please help am devastated by this, so soul destroying.
