Green and Red Peppers

My peppers are not getting very big and looks like they are rotten before they get any bigger than a baseball. The leaves always look droopy, the leaves feel moist. What is wrong?

The rotting is caused by blossom end rot. Blossom end rot can be caused by overwatering, which would also cause the other issues you are having. Check the drainage in the area and cut back on watering. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pepper-blossom-end-rot.htm
