I have potted bell peppers that are doing well until two days ago. They started having black spots on a few leaves. I've included a pic. I do have about 5 or 6 softball size peppers ready to harvest and plants are about 36" tall and fruit bearing, additionally new flowers with small fruit begining to grow.

All of my plants are in containers. I am ultra newbie as far as lingo but just do what works for me. This is new so would appreciate your help. I am in zone 10b. Thank you in advance.

Water- Daily on drip
Fertizier-weekly MG Granules in water
Inceticidal Soap- every 7-10 days
Soil is part MG potting soil, part Garden Soil

Zone 10 is a little out of my league, but if I had any concern about the future health of large peppers, I would probably harvest them a little early just to be safe. To me the plants look good.....can't really see the spots you're talking about.

What black spots?
