Me and the grower are of one mind that the brown spots recently showing up on fruit (this is Monterey variety), are from the strong winds we've had for the last four or so days.  Makes sense, especially since there is no signs of disease or insects, and above all these spots are fairly firm.  It's almost like the fruit has callused a bit there.

What do you think?

Discolored fruit - area is fairly hard and dryed out.

Same as above, just showing up in several areas.  I see my hands look pretty dry there, probably need to moisturize.
