    Sounds like it could be peach tree curl. You can treat with a copper ammonium complex and adding horticultural oil to the treatment mixture. The oil, which should be one percent of the mixture, also helps control some insects that affect the trees. Spray your trees twice, the first time in late November and the second time in early February. A handy trick for remembering those dates is to spray right after Thanksgiving and just before Valentine’s Day. Spray trees until they are dripping.
    Good luck!
