Sometimes to determine efforts to control fruit rot in chili is difficult to determine because the cause of fruit rot is not just caused by one cause, even fruit rot has almost the same symptoms, it is necessary to ascertain the cause of the disease so that we are able to provide appropriate control, if not risk drained capital to control fruit rot becomes useless because it never shows a real change, what else if we do not understand the problem of pesticides, so I suggest you friends first know the cause and then know what pesticides are suitable for control, because so many pesticides in circulation on the market so that the risk of wrong choice of pesticides is likely to occur.

This time TULEN FARMER will be completely peeled 4 causes of fruit rot in chilies that are common in chili cultivation.

4 causes of rot in chilies are caused by 2 different species, namely fungi and pests that are commonly found in chili cultivation fields, both species have almost the same attack symptoms but there are more specific signs for friends to know, to make it easier to understand the cause of the rotten chilies I grouped into 2 signs of fruit rot, namely:


So dry rot is certainly caused by fungi that cause streaks/anthracnose/ spotting of fires etc. according to the naming of each place, has different symptoms but no obvious difference.

Fungal causes of anthracnose, namely:

Gloesporium piperatum

Gloesporium piperatum is a fungus that causes anthracnose in chilies, “Anthracnose in large chilies is widespread in all chili growing areas throughout the world, although in many countries this disease is considered to be two diseases, each caused by one fungus. Gloesporium caused in chili call anthracnose, which is caused by Colletotrichum is called rotten ripe
(ripe rot) “(Walker, 1956)


Gloesporium piperatum can attack fruits that are still green and can also cause dead ends (dieback) (Suhardi, 1988), the first symptoms are small blackish-colored spots and curvature in green or ripe leaves. These spots are enlarged yellow edges and yellow edges elongated, the limbs will become dark. In humid weather, the fungus forms a fruiting body (acervuli) spores (conidium) pink. The disease develops even when in storage it is finished picking.Colletotrichum capsaicin

Symptoms of an attack that first arises to form blackish-brown spots, then extends to soft rot, in the middle spots there is a collection of black dots consisting of groups of fungi and conidium fungi, severe attacks can cause the entire fruit to dry out and wrinkle (wrinkles), fruit that should be red becomes straw-colored.


Wet rot is caused by 2 different species between fungi and pests, but has a very clear difference

SO I emphasize again to my friends that if the rotten fruit on the chili is dry then make sure it is an anthracnose symptom, MEDIUM if the fruit rot disease on the chili is wet then it is not amtrak, then check on the fruit about the symptoms caused.

WET ROT Fruit flies

if the wet rot on the chili has symptoms of yellowing of the fruit stalk, there is a kind of black spot as an injection site, if there are larvae/larvae in the fruit, check up to 10 fruits that have the same symptoms because they are worried that the larvae in the fruit have come out, if in 10 pieces in found in one of the 10 fruits with the same symptoms so make sure it is a rotten base caused by fruit flies.

POWDER FRUIT Phytophthora spp.

if the wet rot on the chili appears to be dark green because it appears wet on the fruit and one thing is certain the difference is very significant between the wet rot caused by fruit flies, it means it is a disease caused by the fungus Phytophthora spp.

Those are the 4 causes of rot in chilies and symptoms of an attack, hopefully, friends will be able to determine the right control method.
