Default My fruit is rotting - Diseased or fungus?

My banana patch is thick and fruiting heavily. but something is killing my fruits

My Dwarf Brazilian is the most heavily affected (last 4 hands of bananas get a fungus and rot)

just now saw 2 ICE CREAM fruit clusters rotting out too.

I have about 15 varieties and im worried this might spread. what is it? would copper fungicide spray help?

How do the leaves look on the plant? The ones I can see look green, just curious because that can help narrow down bugs/disease/fungus. Have you fertilized recently? That can be a cause as well.

Wow! I am stumped on that one. My first thought was cigar-end rot, but it takes out older fingers usually. Maybe Calcium or Boron

At second take, some of the leaves look blotchy and yellow. Do you know what caused the stem to turn black in areas? Those layers need to be cutoff.

no recent fertilizer on these.

the nanas are overall healthy, yellowing of leave on older frond which is normal. the trunk have dark black spothes on some. the kandarian has it too but just flowered for the first time from an agristart.

Theres a mango next to the dwarf brazlian which is always chlorotic looking and unhealthy. there may be a leak from the city water pipe which has chlorine. the pipe is near this area.

maybe LACK of fertilizer? Chlorine or city water poisoning? soil contamination in this area?

this is in SW florida not Tallahassee, so tropical diseases are more prevelant.

I would check the pseudostem for a vascular disease.
