Hi my apples on my super dwarf Fuji apple tree have black spots on most of them. The spots are black and about 3mm in diameter.

I asked this question before and here's a better photo, sorry!

Also if you can tell me if the fruit is still edible. Thanks!

Answer: Hi,

Sorry, but for whatever reason your image isn’t appearing. However, it sounds to me like your apples could be suffering from apple scab? You can treat apple scab with Yates Liquid Copper Fungicide. You will need to spray at green tip, which is usually done before the flower/fruit forms. Hope that helps for next season!
