Answer

Your tree has brown rot fungus but should be able to be rescued. Remove all the diseased peaches and twigs before appplying an all purpose fruit tree fungiside. For future control remove all the fruit at the end of harvest including damaged or rotton fruit and twigs that have fallen to the ground and burn them. Use fungicide regularly in early spring before flower buds appear and reapply every two to three weeks until the blossoms fade. Resume fungiside when fruit gets it's first blush of color (2 to3 weeks before harvest). Prune tree for maximum air circulation and sunlight.
