You did not mention any association with salt toxicity?  
Does that mean that this problem cannot be connected to salts?

Javier, I suspect this problem could be associated with salts, we just don't have any samples to date which have shown this. Please let us know if you find a suspect, and we'll run the test to be sure.

Hi There  
We are seeing calyxes like this on our 4 month old Monterrey variety.  
Currently we are experiencing hot and cold temperatures, whilst we are in winter.  
Any advice please would greatly be appreciated.

Garry, that's going to be a hard call. I guess the question I would have for you to start is are the calyces on fruit that is more or less the same age? Then it could have something to do with unfavorable weather.  
If on the other hand it is across all your fruit without regard to age, we are looking at something else, perhaps even one of the situations named above.
