I believe curc is repelled by the fuzz on peaches. Nectarines are usually
hit a lot harder. Up here Jap plums are much more likely to avoid damage
than the Euros. Tarnished plant bug does a number on peaches at a lot of
sites and leave most other fruit undamaged. TPG hangs out in the broadleaf
plants in the turf and jump on the trees after mowing I'm told. All in all
peaches do better here without spray than most fruit if they don't get
killed by borers.
Some varieties of apples suffer less damage from PC. At one site I manage
there are a lot of old strain yellow deilicous (prone to russetting and they
ripen later than some of the new strains). Without spray there is a good
crop most years. The Macs, Red D.s, Baldwin, newer strain yellow D.and RI
Greening apples seldom yeald fruit at this site without spray.
