    My best guess would be small snails which love climbing things.  The damaged fruit looks like it has been rasped-away by mollusc teeth.  Alternatively, it could be caterpillars or even a beetle.  Try going out in the dark and inspecting with a torch to see if you can catch the culprit(s) red-handed, as many pests are nocturnal feeders.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
