I went out yesterday to pick some peppers for a saute, and was dismayed to find that my anaheims have a weird brown thing going on. The area that is brown is soft (unusable). I cut it away, and the rest of the pepper seems fine.
Hmmm, happygirl345, I suspected that maybe a BER (blossom end rot) problem. I understood it effects tomatoes but I haven't learned that it could effect peppers? More research is needed, since it's only a "hunts". BER is a problem with calcium deficiency in certain plants such as tomatoes so I've learned.
Bone meal can be overdone, but I think the damage would show up in the leaves of the plant. You're probably OK with the bone meal. How much did you apply? Was it coarse of fine? The reason I don't think it's BER is that the tips of the peppers look OK. If you can rig some mid-day shade, that would help if sun burn is the problem.
