Glomerella leaf spot and fruit rot is a devastating fungal disease of apple that results in premature defoliation and diminished fruit quality or unmarketable fruit. Additionally the disease may cause decreased winter hardiness and reduced crop return. While Glomerella leaf spot and fruit rot must be managed annually in North Carolina, other apple growing regions in the eastern United States have reported occasional outbreaks during hot and humid growing seasons.
