I believe that what eats the peel off lemons in Melbourne is the
Brushtail Possum. I dont know if the Ringtail Possum goes in for this as
well. I am told that sprinkling the tree with blood-and-bone fertilizer,
or hanging little bags of it in the tree, will deter them. (Providing

My wife Anne says she doesn't find the thought of bags of b+b fertiliser
hanging in garden very 'ap-peeling', and think what it would be doing to
the poor possum's 'zest' for life.
