Unfortunately, your photo did not come through.

It does sound like a common infection, Rhizopus. The easiest way to control this is to take away the conditions in which it thrives. It likes warm humid conditions, so removing infected growth and proper pruning to allow airflow is necessary.

Treating with a fungicide will also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
