Red Bell Pepper Dark on Inside

Anonymous added on August 29, 2013 | Answered

I bought two nice looking, firm red bell peppers. When sliced, they both had a dark, sort of smokey look inside. Any idea why and are they safe to eat?

Sounds like they were put into a gas and that preserved the outside while the insides aged. I wouldn't suggest eating it, especially if it looks like there's mold beginning to develop.
