Welcome to the forum Norm :)

Looks like some type of fungus, bit of a dusting with sulphur or cinnamon wouldn't hurt.

I would say a baby fig tree with black fungus. Wipe off with a wet paper towel as much as you can, then spray with a fungicide. Do not breath it and wash your hands when done.

Thanks LastBlow, very good advice , same day I read your post I also saw the story in the link which I would probably have ignored without your timely comment, much appreciated.
