Question by Kaya: Why do my bell peppers have soft brown spots on them?
Two of the peppers on my red bell pepper plant have this soft, brown spot on them, but there is no opening. They are not ripe yet. Will I be able to eat them?
I don’t think it’s sun scald since they are pretty well protected by the surrounding leaves, but maybe that’s it?

It could be from the sun. I had the same problem with mine. I just cut the bad part out. Sometimes the peppers would totally rot on me, if I left them on the plant too long.
I found this link, hope it helps. I disagree, however. My peppers were watered regularly.
One more thing-I don’t know if you’re new to growing vegetables or not. But my garden was much healthier if I “rotated” my “crops”. In other words, don’t plant peppers in the same spot next year, as you did this year.
