Red Pepper Problem

Anonymous added on August 16, 2011 | Answered

Our red peppers look great except the bottoms are turning a yellowish brown and look diseased. I have not cut into one to see what is inside, but am afraid to eat them. The plant is in a container and gets watered daily.

This is blossom end rot. The peppers are safe to eat, just cut out the bad spots. This article will help you fix it:
