Red Pepper Plants

My Peppers Have Brown Raised Lines on Them From Top to Bottom

Pdhorton added on July 31, 2013 | Answered

This pepper plant looks healthy, but the older peppers, which have not yet turned red, (it is a sweet red pepper plant) have brown lines on them. The lines run from top to bottom and are brown and rough. What is going on and can I fix it?

I've found this to be a sign that the pepper is completely ripe. However, I've never seen it on a sweet pepper, usually just on jalapenos. Keeping the peppers harvested will increase the yield.
