We had plenty of fruit this year (which was fine and tasty)and no other problems. The veins remain green in the centre of the leaf!

This could be a number of things. If the crop was fine, then I would be inclined to say that it could be a simple nutrient deficiency. If you are not thinning the tree, it can become too heavy with fruit, cause crowding and disease. See the cultural requirements below.
