My bell peppers all have black spots on the fruits. The peppers seem to have thin walls and poor fruit shape as well. The spots become holes in the peppers and the seeds are few in the damaged fruits. I have side dressed the plants with coffee grounds recently and am starting to get stronger peppers, but I would like to make sure I take care of this permanantly. I just saw some birds leave my pepper patch which might explain what happens to the exposed seeds of my bell peppers.
