Need help with what happened

Dade City, FL(Zone 9a)

I do not know what happened here. The pepper was doing fantastic and then I looked and it was completely drooped. Not dead, just ALL leaves were limp. Water level was fine. (Earth box) and then I looked and found this on the bottom of two peppers. There is a possibility that too much Epsom salts were sprayed on them by a well meaning helper, could that have done this?

It looks like it might be blossom-end rot, which also occurs on tomatoes.

You need more calcium. And too much magnesium can interfere with calcium uptake.

Read the following; it has some good information. We had this problem last year.

Hope this helps.
