Something wrong with peppers

Does anyone know what might be wrong with my sweet peppers? Had about three looking like this so pulled them off the plants. The affected parts are a bit soft, haven't actually cut them open to see what's going on inside. Thoughts and advice greatly appreciated

    There's no obvious sign of anything wrong on the outside, so have a look inside and see if you can see anything.
    Are the plants generally healthy?
    There is a disease called Anthracnose that looks similar, but I don't think it's that.

    I've have had something very similar looking on my peppers occasionally when fully ripe - I just cut the dodgy looking bit out and use the rest.

  • Thanks Pete. The plants themselves are in rude good health, I can't keep up with them! I'll have a look inside. Cheers

    Yours are way ahead of mine which have only recently started flowering.
    I'm off to repot them into 10L pots now
    Hopefully there's nothing lurking inside your damaged peppers

    Considering we're Oop North, we seem to have had a lot of early starters. And loads of beginners luck! 😁

    Long may your beginners luck continue 😁
    I only had room for 5 10 litre pots on the staging - the last one had to make do with a 7.5L pot
