Chilis Shrivelling

Hi Buddyboy,

Thanks for that. It's a possibility, though my fertiliser combination should have a decent amount of calcium. I guess I'll cross my fingers and hope it doesn't spread to any of the others.

Hello Dove,

Yes, that's right.  One plant has yellowing leaves, but the other three look very healthy. Actually, closer inspection has revealed that the shrivelling has not affected all of the fruit, only some of them.

Thanks both,

Pretty sure I'm watering and feeding enough, yes. And (apart from one plant) the leaves look good. Weather has been a bit grotty lately, so perhaps that's it.

Hello all,

I have some chills (cayennes) growing in the balcony. They've been doing fairly well and have quite a heavy crop of fruit. They've started to ripen now, but at the same time they're going a little soft and shrivelled. The rest of the plants look healthy (except for one plant whose leaves are yellowing).

Is this normal? Should I be worried?

Thanks for any advice,

Thank you!

I'll maybe ease back on the watering a bit too then.

Thanks. That was I was hoping. There are lots of greenfly around for them to eat!

Hi All,

Does anyone know what these are and whether I should be worried or glad to see them?

Thanks, and sorry for the delay. I'm attaching a couple of snaps here. Actually, the curl has much reduced over the last couple of days. Buddyboy, I thought they liked it pretty damp? I was wondering if it was the heat, as their straightening out after a day or three that has been much cooler.
