Spotted Cayenne Peppers

Anonymous added on July 18, 2011 | Answered

I am growing cayenne peppers that were started from seed. The peppers have come along nicely but the peppers on one plant are spotted. The spot grows until the area is shriveled and dead. The spot is near the tip, but not ON the tip. The remainder of the pepper apparently continues to ripen but we have been picking the damaged peppers off the plant to try to keep it from spreading. Any suggestions?
