premature fruit drop - gooseberry

mbrown297(6b)June 1, 2013

I've noticed over the last few days that fruit on some of my gooseberry plants (Hinnomaki Red) are turning a light salmon color, getting soft and falling off the plant. I know they aren't yet ripe. Anyone have any suggestions? I don't think the plants are overly dry. It has been very hot here the last few days but before that we had a good rain.
Thanks.
