    It does appear that one of them is suffering a fungal infection, due to high humidity.

    As for the ripening process... Use fertilizers that are high in Phosphorus, and Potassium, as these will hurry the ripening process along a little faster.

    Now back to the fungal issue. I recommend a solution that I use often. If you don;t have, or can't get all of the ingredients, then it will be ok. I just use them all because they are safe, and cover a very broad spectrum of issues together. The recipe is as follows:

    First, you will want to prime the ground with dolomitic lime, then spread wettable sulfur to Kill off any infection in the soil. I Also like to spray the plant itself. Mix a few drops of one or more of these ingredients into warm water with a spoonful of coconut oil: Rosemary oil, lavender oil, neem oil, garlic oil, cinnamon extract/oil and for really bad cases, also add clove oil.
