Sweet banana peppers
My Hungarian sweet banana peppers look fine on the outside, but when I cut them open they have brown spots on the inside. The spots do not go completely through the fruit. They are not visible on the outside. What is the cause and are they safe to eat?

Although it is safe to eat, it is very unsightly and can affect the taste. I would chalk this up to a fungal issue. You can fix this in the soil by applying wettable sulfur and dolomitic lime to the soil around the plants.
