If you are seeing ants, it probably means you either have an aphid problem (ants are attracted to their honeydew) or there is rotten or split fruit on the attracting them.

If it's aphids, once they are treated, the ants will leave too. Here is some information on treating aphids: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/homemade-aphid-control-a-natural-way-to-kill-aphids.htm

If pests are not the problem, you may need to pick off all the remaining fruit. Additionally, you can try some of the suggestions in the following articles: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/insects/get-rid-of-ants.htm
