Q.Lemon Tree

Zone Modderfontein, Gauteng, SA | Melanie Swanepoel added on May 18, 2017 | Answered

HI there, my lemon tree has had a weird kind of white, scale on its leaves, when you shake the tree they fall off like dandruff. Can I still eat the fruit? Also what is it, and what can I do (organically) to rid the tree of this? Much appreciated!!

It's a fungus or other citrus tree disease. You just need to treat it with a special spray treatment. I don't know if you should eat the fruit...I wouldn't until the issue is resolved. Definitely look for an organic option
