Here's an article that may be helpful, but this looks very much like you've had snails or slugs munching on your fruit in the night. Try to check with a flashlight at night. They normally don't feast during the day. Otherwise, you may want to examine the plants closely to see if you have an infestation of some kind of insect. Those segmented things on each photo looks similar to the eggs of leaf footed bugs they are sucking insects not chewing insects. Feel free to send us a new email if you still aren't able to resolve it.
