A bit more complicated than with lemons, but:

"Researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed
bionic mushrooms that uses graphene to produce electricity.
More accurately, the researchers added 3D printed clusters of
cyanobacteria to the mushroom's cap, which gave the fungi the
ability to generate electricity. They also put in graphene
nanoribbons to collect the current."

However, it does nothing for battery life.

I gather that the idea is to use different types of bacteria as
organic sensors producing electrical signals which can be
interpreted by circuitry. Or to affect their behaviour in reaction
to the electronic circuit that they are connected in.

Early days though.

Yep, sensors. The problem with mushrooms is that just about all I know
have fragile, short lived fruiting bodies(the mushroom), except bracket
fungi. Now, if it was more of a yeast, then I'd expect something useful
before my kids die.
