It looks like blossom end rot.

Yes, it is BER blossom end rot as Robin said. There is a FAQ here all about it and many discussions that a search will pull up for you. Just search this forum for 'BER' and 'Blossom end rot' for all the details. The rest of the fruit is fine to eat.

It looks like sun scald to me. When a brown spot appears, which then turns into a slight depression in the skin--looks rather like a scar, it is sun scald. It is not a disease. One can eat the fruit, just cut away the brown spot.
