A few of my peppers are, it seems, suffering blossom end rot - first identified a week or two ago - this is based on the descriptions on the condition elsewhere on the site, but here's a few pics to help confirm:
From what I read on here, and in other locations on the web, the afflicted fruits can't be "cured" of this state; any damage done is permanent. So:
Is an afflicted fruit ever salvageable (for the purposes of being eaten)?
Should I be removing afflicted fruit from the plant as soon as the condition is noticed?
Or should I wait for a certain level of severity before acting?
Or maybe there is some obscure benefit to leaving the fruit on the plant?
