Help I got such nice fruit but they get stung and I cut off the worst part deep cut and eat rest taste great so my question what do I do as I don’t spray and they grow against a wall ,

I take it you mean they are stung by some insect. Try and find an organic spray on the internet. Try and work out what the insect is.
