Whisk together the flour, sugar, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
Toss the flour mixture with the fruit and lemon juice.
Arrange in the prepared baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, rolled oats, chopped pecans, and salt.
Use clean fingers to work the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
Spoon the mixture over the fruit. Bake for 1 hour, until browned and bubbly.
Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired. Enjoy!
