Pepper plants not forming fruit after blossoming #755388

Asked June 10, 2021, 4:42 PM EDT

Plants seem to flower Ok, but then the blossom dries up and stem usually turns yellow and falls off. All of my plants are hot peppers.

I believe the blooms are not being pollinated.  Also, it may be too hot right now.  Keep them well watered and do not use any insecticides. You need insects to pollinate.
