American gooseberry mildew, early June. Initially, powdery white patches appear on shoots and leaves, then on the fruits themselves. New shoots may become misshapen and fail to grow properly. Eventually, the skins of the fruits may turn brown <br />
and felt-like or leathery and, <br />
although the mildew can be <br />
removed and the fruits eaten, they are not very tempting.
