Brown Splotches on Peppers

Anonymous added on June 3, 2011 | Answered

I have red and green bell peppers that have developed brown spots on the fruit. I have them planted inside pots with the bottoms cut out in my garden. I water every morning. Is that too much? What could be causing these brown spots?
