I have a choko vine that is giving me some great choko's however at one end of the vine most of the chokos appear to getting stung or diseased as they have a small dark spots and slightly deformed, could you please enlighten me on this problem. I find it very strange that it is only happening in one area of the vine. Looking forward to your reply, thankyou!
