What could be causing this? It doesn’t seem to be affecting the inside of the fruit, so not too worried at this stage, but still would like to cure/prevent before it becomes any worse…
Oopps trying again to attach a pic…
Here they are Anja…I hope lol
and another shot
Thank you so much Kirsty!!!!
Don’t know Anja. It doesn’t look too serious. Is it on all the fruit?
My lemons had brown spots all over and the disease affected the fruit. The spots were indented. I think it was
“Septoria Spot is a fungal disease and generally a sign of high humidity in the area around the tree. It presents as brownish marks about the size of a finger print on the fruit, and slightly sunken. The quality of the fruit is not usually affected but discontinue overhead watering and improve the air circulation in the canopy by thinning the central branches”
But then again I don’t think that is what your lemons have.
This is a newish tree and hasn’t had much fruit. This was the last one on the tree and I don’t remember any of the other fruit being affected…
