Fungi associated with root rot, stem canker, dieback, gummosis and leaf spots in young peach trees were isolated and identified. The most predominant fungi in the stem and root lesions were Fusarium solani and F. oxysporum. Dothiorella sp. was associated with the stem gummosis, and Mucor hiemalis was consistently found in the leaf lesions. Pathogenicity tests confirmed M. hiemalis as the cause of the foliar spots in peaches.
