Fruit flies and fruit fly larvae (maggots) can cause your fruit and vegetables to turn into soft, mushy mess. Adult female fruit flies lay eggs in the flesh of ripening and ripe fruits and vegetables. Once the eggs hatch, the larvae begin to feed within the fruit, causing it to ripen prematurely, rot and drop to the ground.
