Hi.

Thanks

That  sounds like leaf curl fungus. It is common on peach trees. If the trees are not affected badly I would not worry. If you feel that you need to treat the problem, there are organically acceptable copper based sprays that will kill the fungus. These should be used sparingly as a build up of copper in the soil will cause problems.

Liquid seaweed spray is said to help with resistance against leaf curl.

Cleaning affected fallen leaves away from the trees might also help.
