I have never had much luck here with peppers. Tomatoes are great and I cannot understand why I cannot grow my peppers…

Can you include photos? Does this also cause bloom drop? Some peppers will turn black, or deep purple at the stem joints, naturally. A photo can help me to determine the cause of the issue.

Are these in container? The most common issue in container is overwatering. Especially if there are no drainage holes.
