For some reason my bell peppers are turning brown before full maturity. How do I avoid this?

  • We just had an identical question only it involved tomatoes. Tomatoes, peppers, potatoes ARE ALL in the same family. This looks just like blossom end rot. Perfect pictures.

  • What do you mean by blossom end rot and how do I fix it?

    Hi! I can't find the one @stormy is referring to, but I did find others that might be helpful, including gardening.stackexchange.com/questions/1757/…... from 2011, which is specifically about peppers. Hope you get what you need either from old or new answers, or a combination of both! Jul 28, 2016 at 22:58

    Blossom end rot is on the blossom end, though. Some of these peppers have issues on the sides (and not on the blossom end). In at least those cases, it could be a fungus or old sun damage, but I don't know what it is. Jul 29, 2016 at 6:20
