Unfortunately, Chuck, I think it may well be Black Spot. According to the link you gave plus several others I checked it does look serious. A couple of sites suggested a copper spray so I'll try that but the gist of the info was to get rid of the tree. The lime tree next to it is fine. Thanks for your input.

IMO the tree is worth trying to save. I would pick ALL of the fruit now and begin a spray regimen of an anti-fungal over the entire tree .
