Vertex Rot Another disease that often affects peppers is vertebral rot. Its signs are deep spots, black, or a shiny shade, and as a result, the pepper rots directly on the bush. Sometimes the appearance of apical rot is accompanied by watery areas with a pronounced smell of rot. The root cause of the disease is a lack of moisture, as well as a large amount of calcium and nitrogen in the soil. Control measures: The methods of dealing with this ailment include abundant watering. A good way to eradicate the disease is considered to be spraying with calcium nitrate. During the fight against the disease, it is necessary to destroy infected fruits by burning.
