Extreme temperature often cause flowers to drop. Daytime temperatures above 85F and nighttime temperatures below 55F degrees can both cause this problem. Why it happens on one and not the other? Are they different varieties? If not, it could just be related to the plant's vigor. Generally, as temperatures moderate, new flowers and fruit will form. Good luck!
