    Okay, so maybe I should join sufficient self to get an answer to this questions, but you folks all seem so knowledgeable about so much. We have an apple tree at our office. Well i just went out to pick some apples and there are dark spots all over them. when i wash the apple some of the spots come off.

    here's a picture -- maybe someone can tell me what i need to do, either now or for next year. These are the best Green apples.

    it is brown rot. can do nothing now have to use lyme sulfur in spring and fungicde(any kind) after that. good luck for next year. It won't hurt you just makes them rot faster on the trees and off.
