Why Are the Pepper Flowers Dying

Anonymous added on July 26, 2011 | Answered

Why are my red bell pepper flowers dying? I have nice flowers for about two or three days and then the stem and flower are gone from the bush. I water every two days and I'm always on top of them caring for them as usual.

It sounds like a pollination issue. The high heat and humidity in many parts of the country has been affecting pollination. Or it could be plant pollinators are having trouble getting to the plants. Peppers and tomatoes are identical in how they pollinate so you can use the information in this article to hand pollinate the flowers: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/pollinate-tomatoes.htm
