Star fruit ruined by pests

Our small star fruit tree is very prolific. But during the rainy season we couldn’t eat the fruits that have dots all over. Checking the inside of the fruit, the dots seemed to be a repository of eggs. It is like pricking the fruit so they can place the egg inside. When very ripe, the dots have worms inside. That is the reason why we need an insecticide to control those pricking pests of the star fruit.

  1. I love star fruits, the sweet ones. We use the sour ones for pickle which I don’t care much for. What a sad waste of a crop. Why not use neem oil , its organic and is not bad for you though it drives pests away?
