Deformed Cherries

Posted: 22/05/2016 at 18:14

It took me ages to ID T. padi when it first appeared on my Prunus padi. Early days of internet, not so much info on there. Also I'd decided it was a gall caused by an insect. After I'd sent the pic to someone I'd met from Buglife and he had no idea I started thinking again and eventually hit on the right  ID. No forum or Facebook then and a dial-up internet connection.  Makes one feel quite old

That's Taphrina for sure, I think the sweet cherry one is called T. weisneri, or something like that.

It's a fungus, causes a sort of gall. It's not a disease of the tree, just a useless fruit

Could someone tell me what this is. please?

I wouldn't have put it that family.

But I haven't got a better suggestion at this point

It's a funny year re weather. We had spring months ago then winter came back. 

Late frosts after growth has started can damage even native plants. Id give it a little longer but not much, generally things are growing now.

Agree with Ladybird re feeding, if it's not growing it can't use it.

This plant has one main vein and the smaller veins all come off that.

Ivy has a main vein to each lobe and smaller veins come off those.

Two plants from one seed?

I think beetroot and beet seeds are more than one seed.

I'd never heard of other plants doing this so had a google. All the references are to cannabis.

Didn't find anything scientific on a brief search

A possibility is damage at germination time and branching from there.
