Medium_lemon Lemons going brown and dry

I have a Villa Franca lemon in a pot. It has always produced lots of juicy fruit. This year there is lots of fruit, but just when it starts to yellow, it goes dry and brown. I live in Brisbane. Any ideas what's wrong? Thanks.

Answer: Hi Jacqui,

Thank you for contacting us regarding you lemon. Looks like there is an infestation of citrus mites, which are microscopic spiders that lives on citrus. Try Yates Natures Way Vegie & Herb Spray. It’s certified organic and there’s no withholding period, so you can spray and eat the same day! It’s available in a ready to use or concentrate bottle.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
