Q.Hi, Please see photos. Do my pepper plants have a disease? Bacteria Leaf spot?

Zone 10952 | samdeeman added on June 20, 2018 | Answered

The plant is a couple of months old and is flowering and looks vibrant and healthy.
I found these lesions on 3 lower leaves with no other symptoms elsewhere. I am particularly concerned because I many other pepper and tomato plants in close proximity.

Thank You!!

It does seem like the start of an infection... It is still very early and very treatable right now. Apply dolomitic lime and wettable sulfur. This will take care of the issue. Make sure to only water when the soil is almost completely dry. Peppers are pretty drought tolerant, but not very tolerant of constantly wet soil.

This treatment will also supplement calcium and magnesium, as well as sulfur for the fruit.
