Q.Brown Spots on Bell Pepper

Anonymous added on May 18, 2011 | Answered

So far my red bell pepper plant is producing good peppers. I noticed on two peppers a light brown spot that is actually gooshy to the touch. I live in Arizona. I have had them in an area that is sunny. I recently moved them to a shadier spot. Is the sun affecting it or is it too much water?

It could be sun scald, which is caused by sun that is too intense. Providing a little shade should help.
