It is difficult to tell. Check the tree for any other problems (on the leaves/branches/fruit)- if there are other problems, it is more likely that this is an infestation of a disease. See if it matches the symptoms of any of the diseases discussed in these articles:

You may also need to consult a local expert, like an arborist or local extension agent.
