North Humberside, United Kingdom
I have a young James Greives Apple tree, which has had a good crop this year, but most of the apples are spotted on the surface, as shown on the attached photos. Any suggestions of what causes this and any remedies for next year?
Problem number two is on the Gourmet Peppers I've grown in my greenhouse. See attached photo. All plants have looked really healthy and had a good crop of peppers, but at least half of the fruits have shown some areas of rot, even before full maturity. Some of these problems are due to peppers growing tightly against branches and bruising, but others are showing rot where nothing is in contact with the fruit. The plants have been watered with an automatic watering system, that maintains the same level of moisture in the grow bags, but I've never grown peppers before and I was wondering whether I've set the moisture level too high.
Any body had any similar problems, or can offer any possible solutions for next year?
