It does look similar but mine always starts at the end of the new branches and I have not seen a branch with a live leaf on it, nor patchy blackening. It is just the last part of the branches that are affected. I have on occasion missed cutting an odd one off,(If it's too high) but it has never spread further up the branch. The fruit do form and then just shrivel, they do not turn black.
Can I ask a daft question please? That article is from America - do we have the same bacterial/virus problems here???
Thanks for replying and for your patience!
