Some sort of disease?

musaboru(Inland Calif.)May 4, 2014

Hello all,

I am growing a NoID ornamental pepper variety that has no heat (tastes like a green bell pepper). I am noticing that the peppers never fully 'ripen' like they did in the previous generation. For the past month, since they starting fruiting this year, I am seeing each fruit succumb to what looks like a disease. Is this something I should take seriously and discard possibly infected plants?

Plant looks otherwise healthy. what I would do is clip all affected pods and examine for something that boring into them. Or, clip ALL fruit and see what the next flush produces.
