Q.Bell Pepper Discoloration

Anonymous added on May 30, 2011 | Answered

I bought a yellow bell pepper plant and planted it in a large pot a few days ago. I have a combination of half Miracle Grow and half in-ground soil for veggies and herbs. I noticed that at every branch from the base, there is black and a tail at the end of each new pepper. Is this normal?

Some peppers have a black tint on their stems, so this is normal. The tail, if I understand what you mean right, is simply the leftover from the flower and will fall away. If it does not,simply pull it off when you harvest.
