    Hi @john.kempf – I believe we increased manganese at some time last season to help eliminate powdery mildew. We may need to check that. For powdery mildew I think we increased boron and manganese but I will check my fertiliser schedule. That may have been applied after the seediness stage.

    It is just odd because the fruit for most of the season has inverted seeds and then a stage of outward seeds.

    Perhaps the timing of it is also relevant – it only happens when it’s warm, the second flush of the season, and I have heard of other growers who have literally rock like seedy fruit which is unsaleable – (the conventionals)
