Answer: Hello Melanie,

It looks like sucking pests have been feeding on your fruit in early stages of development. While the fruit may be fine to use regardless, to prevent this in future you might consider several sprays with Yates Pyrethrum Insect Pest Killer from early fruit set (when pests first appear) through to early ripening.

Feed the tree with Yates Dynamic Lifter Organic Plant Food and keep well watered for best results.

Kind regards,

Matt
