The spots on the peppers may be sunscald, which is like a sunburn for plants (especially if they're more toward the top). While they should recover on their own, providing them with some shade will help correct this problem, especially if it's been really hot lately. We recommend shading the pepper plant with a translucent cloth cover.

If the rotted spots are at the bottom part of the fruit, then it's likely blossom rot. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pepper-blossom-end-rot.htm
