Talked to my contacted at Unv of KY yesterday. I sent him pictures of the dropped fruit cut open to see the development of the pit (seed) and it was developing fine, if it was frost it would been dark brown and dried.

He's at a loss to what it is, said I've done well and kept a spray schedule so wasn't no peaches with sap coming out so wasn't insects either nor disease.

He didn't mention no reports of others in the area with fruit dropping but now you got me wondering.

Thanks
