If just the older, lower leaves are yellowing, it's probably normal and natural. You can just trim them off. If entire new leaves are yellowing, your plant may need to be fed or the plant needs less water. If the newer leaves have yellow areas or spots, sunscald may be the reason. Wish I had more to offer but without seeing the plant, it's difficult to positively diagnose the problem. Hope this information is helpful.
