Pumkins Tomatoes and bell pepers Rotting on the vine.

Post  Hoggar on 7/29/2011, 1:13 pm

I have several different plant species that are rotting before there ripe my bell peppers
the only one we had on the plant for about a month has started to rot at the top where
its connected to the plant. there are several more starting to show up and I would like
to keep the rotting thing from happening to them as well.

We have had several punkins get up to about the size of a good plum and then abort
on the vine turn black and fall off.

our tomatoes are producing like gang busters but a few have rotted on the top at the
vine connection and a couple have gotten blossom rot.

Any suggestions on how to remedy this would be greatly appreciated.

I have no idea about your climate and growing conditions so all I can recommend is contacting your County Cooperative Extension Ag Agent and ask them for advice. Sorry but I hope you get some information.

This is an old post but I thought id post my resolution to the issue I was having.

I adjusted my watering schedule to 10 min twice a day and the Blossom rot went away.

What was your watering schedule before that? More or less?

15 min at 5:30AM so it could soak in before the sun started evaporating it off.
