Can you identify the disease? Is it a fungus or a bacteria?

And it looks more like Bacterial Speck to me. ( smile)

Bacterial Speck is more widespread in your growing zone than is Canker, but if you saw white circles, called ghost spots, on the fruits before they turned the darker color you show, then Canker would be favored.

It's often hard to ID a disease just looking at the affected fruits alone and you should also look at the foliage symptoms as well.

For instance, the foliage lesions for Bacterial Canker and Bacterial Speck are very very different.

The problem Solver should also have pictures of both bacterial diseases as regards both foliage and fruit symptoms.
