I planted 6 green pepper plants in an earth box. They are just about ready to harvest. I have one very odd pepper on one of the plants. It is totally black. All the other peppers on the plant are green. What happened? Is it safe to eat? I am very curious. This is the first time this has ever happened.

As long as it is firm (like the green peppers) it should be safe. Likely it is simply fully matured. All peppers are colored when they are fully matured, but we mostly eat them when they are immature and green. There are peppers that are black when fully mature, so this is likely what happened.
