Peppers – Black Joints
I have noticed that my jalepenos, chili peppers, and red bell peppers all have black joints with droopy flowers. There are a few immature peppers that have all fallen off. I live in North Carolina and we recently had a LOT of rain. I have read about fungal infections causing this but am unsure of how to care for these plants to (hopefully) get a few peppers this year! Any thoughts or recommendations?
