If the spot or blemish is on the top or sides of the fruit, then it is likely sunscald and is from too much direct sunlight. A simple shade will help stop it. If it's on the bottom of the fruit, then it is blossom end rot. These articles will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/pepper/pepper-sunscald.htm
