Something is growing from my mandarin fruits

Mandarin oranges    None Given

I have 6-7 fruits with something growing from them. i also have a branch with one infected fruit and one regular. So what is it? is it safe to eat the other fruits? can it pass to other trees (lemon, orange etc...) what is the treatment?

This look like a physiological disorder to me. It will help us if you provide information like type of mandarin you are cultivating, weather conditions, agronomic practices etc. Did you spray any chemicals like growth regulators, pesticides or fertilizers lately?

Thanks for your fast response! I usually don't use pesticides but my gardner gave the tree 9 months ago confidor to the soil. I'm using a liquid organic fertilizer in my irrigation system (it's from our local nursery) . the local weather is with high humidity and temperature is around 20-30C (in summer it's ~30C).
