Chili Peppers

Anonymous added on June 27, 2015 | Answered

My hot chili peppers are growing well. I have picked and consumed them in different stages (green-orange-red). My issue issue, however, is that some peppers are going from green to black. I am wondering why. Any insight is appreciated. Thank you!

There are some varieties of peppers that ripen to black. If the flesh seems healthy and firm, you may have gotten a plant that was mislabled and the peppers are fine to eat. But, if the flesh feels soft and the skin is wrinkled, they are likely not edible and may be rotted.
