Near my SFG beds, i have a small 3 in 1 apple tree, with Anna, Gala and Golden dorsett.  It's more fruit bush thab tree being about person size.  It had almost good crop of apples going this year, maybe 30-40 apples that had been thinned to clusters mostly  two.  

Last week they we just about ripe and ready to go.  This morning i walked out with the dog and noticed the tree, the apples are all but one gone.  Chhecking the ground i find only one fallen fruit.

I remember seeing one fruit damaged last week with gnaw marks which means either the squirrels or local fruit rats.  Would they strip a tree bare of fruit thwt quickly?

In Southern Cal we had opossums that could strip a tree pretty quickly and efficiently. The squirrels robbing fruit weren't much of a problem, and rats usually just leave bite marks on fallen fruit left on the  ground to rot. Raccoons may also account for the missing fruit, but my money's on the opossums. They are usually only seen at night or can be found thriving below houses in crawl spaces and often show up in garages that were left open at night.
