Hi Stewart and welcome to GoY, I am sure we can help you, where abouts do you have the fruit tree's, Are they in pots or in the ground? Have a look at the area they are in, is it full sun or heavily shaded? Also check your soil's acidity it may be too high.

Thank`s Bobq the trees are in the ground full sunlight, but I havent checked the acidity but I will now.
Thank. Stewart

have you checked to see if there are tiny black beetle type bugs because it sounds very similar to what has happened to mine this year.
