Here is another pic. The apples do not seem to be affected. I will pass your comments on though Nickyto8




It may be scab aka black spot. High temperature and rain causes it. clear up any fallen leaves in autumn and burn them as the spores overwinter on the leaves. Pick off the worst affected and burn and clean dissenffect pruning tools.
The apples will form baclk spot too, but they wont be completely ruined by it.
You can get sprays for it just read instructions as there are times when you cant spray, e.g. when the trees in flower.
Roses are affected by black spot too
