Pepper Plant

Anonymous added on June 5, 2011 | Answered

My pepper was growing really well and started to flower. This morning I noticed that where the leaves meet the stalk, it's gone black and the flowers, along with the fruit, are starting to fall off. I’ve done nothing different than I have done all along. What could be wrong please?
