All the above cited practices point to one main issue,POLLINATION!
Thus,the mishapen fruit is more likely to be as a result of poor pollination .When the affected fruit is disected ,the ‘’flat’’ part will show few seeds that have not developed compared to the other part.
Every farmer should ensure that pollination is maximised within the farm ,this can be achieved by encouraging the presence of pollinators in the farm i.e bees through various methods such as use of Honey addition into the spray programs and use of beehives around the farms,
Use mild pesticides during the critical stage of flowering and fruiting
Use of hand pollination is also a key agronomic practice that will ensure uniformity in fruit size and shape.
