blemishes and sticky substance on fruit
I have several grafted trees. All the ones that have had fruit or blossoms have had a sticky sap like substance on the fruit. The fruit will then rapidly ripen and blemishes as pictured will form as well.
One tree, a eureka lemon, got the stickyness on all its forming fruit and then lost 95% of its leaves. I havent looked super close on all the plants but so far i havent seen scale. Ive sprayed with an all purpose flowering tree pesticide for a week but so far it hasnt seemed to work
What to do?
