We live in Boston and grow Bell Peppers every year with great success. Why would they come up black?

Hi Catat - i checked a couple of other websites - all seem to agree - the problem is likely over or underwatering. Hmmm although I've only grown red and green peppers I know there are other coloured varieties... including black and purple - is it possible you have one of these?
