Can I eat peaches from a tree that has some sort of leaf curl blight?

I moved into my house outside of SF in November. There is a peach/nectarine hybrid tree in the backyard. When the leaves grew in this spring, they were obviously affected by something - most of the leaves were bubbled, pocked and curled. Google searching led me to believe it was peach leaf curl.
Most of the leaves fell off. Then more leaves grew. Now most of the leaves are healthy looking - maybe 10-15% show signs of the leaf curl. The tree is also heavy with fruit that's starting to ripen. Are these...peacharines?...nectapeaches?...safe to eat?
