Dear GG

My Tomato plants which i took from you were growing very well, the grew up to 1.5 to 2 feet, they started flowering, but sudeen i dont know what happened, flowers never became fruit and some of the flowers buds fell down even before flowering, there is only one fruit in one of the plant which is also black from below.

My chilli plants are more than two feet long, they started flowering almost three weeks back, but flowers are not turning in to fruits.

I have uploaded the photos on picasa for your reference,  Request you to go through the following link :

Request you to go through the photos and help me out with a solution.

The black spot is Blossom End Rot. You need to apply Boron & Calcium for it. Google for Blossom End Rot for more information.

Srikanth is right. Looks like BER.

Also, the chilly plants look like they are affected with Leaf Curl virus. Usually the yield drastically reduces because of LCV. Lack of sunlight is also a reason why fruits don't set.
