green peppers drooping

I live in cent. florida.  I planted my green peppers in my full sun garden area.  They were doing fine. Recently it's been really hot and now all the leaves have severely wilted.  I have flowers and even a little pepper starting, but it seems to be overwhelmed. Do peppers not like hot Florida sun around the middle of June? thank you.


Leaf wilt can be caused by several things. Not enough water, to much sun and disease.

Try using a 50% plastic sun screen and keeping the soil nice and moist.

If this does not work, take a plant to your local nursery and ask him to check the roots for nematodes or another thing that he might see.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
