    Are these kept inside or out ?

    You need to take them out. Sounds like a fungal infection, I wouldn't eat any of the fruit if it has any ( not that you would). Spray with a diluted mixture of milk and water for a couple of days but me personally, would bin the plant. 

    I never keep strawberry plants undercover, always outside. You need to ventilate those  plastic greenhouses, otherwise stale air builds up and you get problems with the plants.

  • right .thank you will do that.lots of fruit on .six plants in a grow bed .am gutted .so you think the fruit will be usesless then.

    If it's on the fruit, I wouldn't eat it.

    If the milk and water doesnt help, bin the plant cos that will spread to other receptive plants.

  • thank you for the advice. hope i can save some .
