Is It Safe to Eat Peppers Which Could Have a Disease

rock777 added on April 8, 2012 | Answered

Can you cut out a bad spot on a pepper and eat the rest? I have a few small brown spots on my hot banana peppers. The spots are very small ( about 1/16 inch ) and located in a small area. Is it ok to cut the spots out and use the rest?

Brown spots on peppers are usually the result of sunscald (too much light) or blossom end rot. Both of which are not harmful to you. So yes, you can safely removely the bad areas and eat the peppers.
