Hello all,

I live in Texas and bought a Improved Meyer lemon tree earlier this spring I planted in the ground and it has started producing fruit that are still small and green but I have noticed that the rinds look like they are getting eaten by something...also the leaves have yellow circles with brown dots on them. Can anyone please offer advise, no one has been able to figure out what is causing this. Below I have attached pics. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated

It almost looks like bird damage. Have you opened one to see if anything is inside?

No I didn't I pruned most of those lemons off already but did not look inside....someone suggested this may be slugs but I'm still puzzled at what could be causing this??

Slugs was my first thought. I have a rat eating the rinds on my tree. Glare

Do you see slime trails?
