Bell Peppers Rotting on Plant
I am having very poor luck with a sweet bell pepper that I planted this year. It is planted in a half whisky barrel with wood chips as mulch. I water the plant daily, as the hot and arid climate of southern Nevada requires. It has grown fine, but produced only one pepper. This pepper grew quickly to about 2 inches by 2 inches and then just rotted without ever ripening. Could excessive heat have caused this? It was over 105 consistently for about a week when the pepper rotted.
