Pepper plant disease and treatment

Zone Mauritius | farook added on May 5, 2016 | Answered

The 3 photos illustrate the problem. The first photo illustrates a healthy pepper plant. The second one shows the tip of the plant becoming black and the third shows the plant dying. There has been 2-3 rainy days prior to the problem cropping up. What is this disease and what is the treatment? Thanks.
