Brown Rot Fungus Treatment for Fruit Trees. Brown rot (Monolinia fructicola) is a deadly fungal disease which targets fruits with a hard pit center, as well as the trees that produce them. It is the most destructive tree fruit disease in the United States and exceptionally common in the Fort Worth area. In addition, brown rot disease is the number one greatest threat worldwide for fruit crop loss. A certified arborist is on high alert for initial indications of the presence of this rapidly progressing fruit destroyer, as it loves warm, humid climates typical of Fort Worth spring weather. Infectious brown rot fungi live and reproduce (overwinter) during winter months in dead blossoms, infected twigs, and old dried fruit remaining on the tree or left laying on the ground beneath. There are two visibly distinct phases to the infection’s progression. First, as the trees begin to blossom, flowers turn brown, wilt and die, leaves yellow, and canker sores appear on branches and new stem growth. Next, the fruit is targeted several weeks prior to ripening fully when sugar content in the fruit escalates. Experienced tree companies have witnessed the destruction of a tree’s entire fruit production within a matter of just a few days if the weather is damp and warm during the final stage of ripening.
