This sounds like Oriental fruit moth, a primary pest of peach that will also infest plum, apricot, nectarine, cherry, apple and pear. This pest has two or more generations of young during the growing season. The early generation larvae enter young twigs and may also feed on and enter the side of the fruit. If the fruit remains on the tree, a clear, gummy exudate will ooze from the wound, eventually turning black. Additional generations of larvae are more likely to enter nearly ripe fruit from the stem end, tunneling and feeding down to the stony pit.
