Our bell peppers started off doing very well & have had good yield. However, lately the peppers have been getting these flat tan spots that eventually penetrate all the way through. How can this be prevented? BTW, they are in a large pot on our patio were we also grow tomatoes, herbs, & flowering plants.

    Now that you mention it, we did find a green & yellow caterpillar in the vicinity the day I took those pictures, but it wasn’t on the pepper plant. We banished him to the forest next door! Thanks for your reply.

    I had the brown spots on my bells as well, but only on the peppers that were in the direct intense sun during the scorching past couple of weeks we have had here in Atlanta. I chalked it up to the strong sun and heat. I did not have the hole that you have in the first pic just the brown spots. I have not seen the caterpillars yet.

    peppers sprayed with immunox and daconil are they safe to eat?
