Case in Maine that appears to be SWD attack on intact peaches without
splits or other prior wounds.  These peaches were ripening on the tree but
not over-ripe and no splits etc. for easy drosophila oviposition without
having to cut through skin.  Until now it seemed that SWD could only lay
eggs in peaches with pre-existing wound.  Have other folks seen SWD
infestation of intact peaches?
