Medium_img_20160216_170650 Can anyone help me to know what is wrong with my mum's lemon tree?

The fruit appears to start out ok , but then gets a 'tiger bread' type appearance. I'm not sure if this is disease, or lack of something????

Answer: Hi there, it looks like you have a fungal problem caused Melanose which you can treat by using a copper spray. Its a good idea to take off any dead wood and affected fruit. Check the trunk and make sure you have no legions or bark that has come away. http://www.yates.com.au/products/disease-control/concentrates/yates-leaf-curl-copper-fungicide-spray/#Y1YruQtIvoyOgtYL.97
