What causes cape gooseberry leaves to start turning blackish. Growing in large pot and has fruit on it. Seems healthy apart from the blackness on most of the leaves. We have a bore, not sure if this is causing the problem

conditions very close to a frost can cause blackening of the leaves. Cover the plants when you expect temperatures to dip below 2deg C during colder months.

Phone an agric company with an agronomist and ask them.
