Why do fruits develop black heart and hollow problems?

This condition is generally associated with a deficiency of mineral nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and boron during the fruit's growth period. Although there is no foul odor, it is not advisable to consume such fruits. 

The affected fruits cannot be restored. Here are some actions you can take to reduce the occurrence of black heart in fruits.
