It is possible that your grove may be experiencing symptoms of disease or pests. Most commonly detected on the Mornington Peninsula is the infestation of black scale - a black powdery coating found on the tree’s leaves. This amongst other issues can directly impact the ability to produce fruit but if not handled properly could cause the trees irreparable damage.
