Gummy of the cherry: Answer: Gummy of the cherry tree


Dear Andrew,
There gummy on all the prunoidee is a non-specific symptom of a general plant malaise. Often the cause is not a fungal pathogen, but incorrect cultivation conditions, such as soil with inadequate pH, loamy and poorly draining soil, lack or excess of nutrients, incorrect pruning, sudden water stress.
Before intervening with unnecessary phytoiatric treatments, it is advisable to learn more about the likely cause of the general malaise of the plant that induced the plant to emit more or less gummy or resinous gel.
