What Causes Brown Spots on Young Red Peppers


jbfortner added on July 28, 2012 | Answered

The largest of the peppers was about 2 inches and had good color, then after a couple of days we noticed that our young red peppers had brown spots. It looks like the skin had died. What do we do to fix this and what is it?

If the spots are 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 they are 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
