Hi Geoff,

Bitter pit is a nutritional disorder of apples cause by calcium deficiency. Climatic factors also play a part in assisting the development of this disorder.
Bitter pit is a nutritional disorder of apples caused by calcium deficiency in the fruit as it matures. It results from a complex relationship between climate, nutrition and tree vigour. Bitter pit symptoms often occur prior to harvest, or after long-term storage.
