Peach Fluff

This is a patio peach called Bonfire. I came out one day and noticed white fluff covering almost the entire tree. It didn't appear to be moving. I'm not sure what it is, but I took a soapy wash rag and wiped it all down. The white fluff seemed to have redish-brown, flat specks under it that flaked off when rubbed.

Arghh, what a shame - I hope you find the cause of this and manage to eradicate it. It looks like a kind of mildew , similar to something that attacked my clematis.

I hope someone with more knowledge comes along and gives you some good advice.

We are in zone 9/10 in southern Spain where peaches and nectarines thrive but are mostly finished by beginning of June.
