Sonia,

It could be too much water if the soil doesn't drain well. It could also be a fungal spot infecting the leaves. That is not a common fruit plant so I suggest you contact your County Extension Office to see about bringing in a sample and perhaps a photo of the plant in its growing location for them to use in diagnosing the problem. Their contact info is:

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
