HELP! What's wrong with my chocolate bell peppers

gardening_guyJuly 28, 2011

Hi there. I'm growing several chocolate bell peppers from seeds I saved from peppers I purchased from a pick-your-own farm. They sprouted nicely, grew well, are healthy looking plants, and had tons and tons of blossoms. But now all of my fruit (about 70-80%, 20% are fine) have this issue shown in the pictures. Help, what could it be. It's not hot enough here yet to be sunscald, and I was thinking calcium deficiency but am not sure. Can someone lend suggestions of what might be causing this? It's only the top of the peppers that are like this, soft and mushy, where the sun hits. All the rest of the pepper is great.
