Oviposition around begin of August on the young fruit near the attachment of the stalk. The larva enters the fruit and tunnels into the pericarp, mainly in the neighbourhood of the kernel. Sap and gum may ooze from the entrance hole. About a month later the full grown larva leaves to fruit and pupates in a cocoon in the soil or in a bark fissure.
