Where I was working yesterday the lady grows gooseberries and they were all black/brown! Not like sooty mould but tough leathery skins. Not come across this before. Any ideas what this is?

Overripe whinhams industry go like that.  They start a deep red when ripe, but lack of water will give them leathery skins. They shrivel and go like raisins.

Thanks fidget  Very possibly the case. They are not the best of waterers!
