You tree has a fungus and it is hard to say if it will directly affect the fruit. Some fungus do affect the fruit and some do not. I can safely say that even if the fungus does not attack the fruit, the quality of the fruit will be affected as the tree will expend energy on battling the fungus than growing its fruit. The best way to treat this is with a general fungicide. It is also a good idea to see about increasing airflow in and around the tree as this will help prevent the fungus from developing in the first place.
