Habanero Pepper Plants

My Orange Habanero Fruit Is Turning White


jadams77 added on August 13, 2015 | Answered

I have planted orange habaneros for the last three years. This year my fruit is turning white and mushy. I am growing in large containers and I live in Texas and the temperature is getting over 100 each day. The plants have full sun and are putting out lots of fruit, just about 1/3 of it is turning white.

This is likely sun scald.

I would remove the diseased parts of the plant and dispose of.

A row cover or a shade to protect the plants from the harshest sun of the day can help.
