I would give it some boron. And if you don't already, feed it regularly with a complete fertiliser (not liquids)

Is your bore water salty or high in sulphur? Does the bore water turn masonry yellow? I think the problem is more than just a lack of trace elements although it could be part of the problem because of your sandy soil.

Usually, if the older leaves of citrus are yellowing, it needs epsom salts.
And if the new leaves are yellowing, it needs zinc & manganese.
Boron should fix the dark patches inside the fruit, and extra potassium will make the pith thinner.
Fruit splitting can be from the tree going from very dry to wet.
Citrus trees should be mulched as well :-)

I buy Borax from bunnings, but not from the garden section, it's in the 'cleaners' section. I think it's about $7 a kilo, much cheaper than buying boron in the garden section :-)

Yes, that is a little more than half the price of Manutec Boron for double the quantity.
