Q.Peppers That ‘Spot’

Anonymous added on July 20, 2012 | Answered

I have several purple and red bell pepper plants in ‘Grow Boxes’ and almost all of them develop grayish tan spots before they ripen. Before they are fully matured they will tear at the tan spots. Do you have any idea why this happens and how I can correct it?
