I have 7 container planted strawberry plants that seem to be suffering occasional black eye. I have researched this quite a bit, and found that the most common cause of this is frost. The only problem is: that it is SUPER hot out right now (I live in a semi-desert area, and im surrounded by wildfires). The last frost was about a month before these plants were planted. It not all the flowers, but the odd few here and there. The irregular shaped fruit indicates the plants have a bit of a boron deficiency, but otherwise the plants seem fine. So... I am very confused. Does anyone know what else might cause this?

Strawberry Black Eye is cause by freezing temperatures when the plants are blooming. So... You problem must be something else. Can you post a photo next time it happens?

Hope you aren't having to breath too much smoke.
