Hi Trevor,

Could it be 'quince fleck' that is infecting your tree. This disease presents itself as black spots with grey centres on the leaves and fruit? Perhaps you could send through a photo so we can see what the infection looks like. For quince fleck it is suggested that a copper spray be applied at bud swell. This will create a barrier so that the fungus cannot enter the plant. It is important to keep your tree healthy with regular fertilising and watering.
