Flower drop probable causes:


1. Day temp too high >95F

2. Night temp too low <65F or too high >85F

3. Too much nitrogen fertilizer

4. Too much water

5. Low light levels (reduces fertility).

6. Very low humidity (reduces fertility)

Not only are poblanos thick-walled, I've had them from the market that are picante but they are very likely land-race varieties.
