I have a problem with my plum tree.
On some of the fruits, there are some small brown scars, and on some, some small cracks with resin oozing out. This happens every year and I'm wondering if there is something wrong with it.
I've included some photos. I only have photos of the brown scars.

I think this is a fruit grub. do you put Vaseline/grease around the trunk of the tree to stop the bugs crawling up and attacking the fruits.
You need to spray early on have a look in the garden centres for something suitable.
