Can anyone tell me what is doing this to my limes? I have been spraying Eco oil weekly to get rid of stink bugs. Lemon tree is not effected just the lime tree.

@brightcolours and @KathyB thanks for the information. It feels like I can not win the battle of fruit trees.

Don't give up hope. Some years are just rubbish. Also those look like Tahitian limes (smooth skin, lots of juicy flesh) rather than Kaffir (very knobbly skin with little juice). Kaffirs are usually grown for their 2 lobed leaves rather than fruit.

Is it Lemon Scab? "Lemon Scab affects lemons and some mandarin varieties. It presents as raised grey to brown corky scabs on the smaller branches, leaves and fruit, causing peaked distortions on the fruit. It may also cause fruit drop at the embryo stage, when fruit is very small. Lemon scab is caused by a fungus which attacks when the petals are falling from the flowers."

"Spray when about half the flower petals have dropped, using copper spray mixed with white oil. Take care to mix the white oil separately, and then add to the already prepared copper spray. Two tablespoons of white oil to one litre of water, and add this to 4.5 litres of prepared copper spray." http://thegarden.com.au/2011/06/citrus-pests-diseases/ @kathyb
