What's wrong with my persimmon fruit?

I am very sad. This is the first year I have seen this. Does anyone else has it and know how to fix it?

Hopefully it is just cosmetic.Were there any branches rubbing and do many fruits have that?They kind of look like bruises. Brady

No it wasn't rubbing any branches. It seems cosmetic only. Could this be done by persimmon psylla?

I would guess stinkbug damage.

I've never heard of psylla damaging fruit, I think they only affect the leaves. How does it look on the inside?
