End rot, sunburn, or something else?

I hope this link works.

Does anybody have any ideas what might be going on with my banana purports? They are in pots and get less sun than my banshees and jalapenos.

Thanks in advance.

Looks like blossom end rot. Increase cvalcium to plant.

If it's blossom end rot, calcium likely won't help, especially at this late date. Would have to ensure it's in the potting mix from the get go.

If new potting mix this year, all should be fine as as provide a consistent supply of water.

Oh yes, and avoid excessively high ambient temperatures as they can foil even consistently moist growing mix.

Yep, looks like blossom end rot.

Are you providing Calcium in your fertilizer?

jean, you are incorrect that calcium will not help. if he added something like bone meal or an organic then yes, that prob will not help. but if he were to get calcium in liquid form and supply it when he waters then the plant will be getting the calcium needed. i forgot to add lime to my mix as i am new to mixing my own mix. so i found a way to break down the lime using vinegar and i supply a little bit when i feed the plants and well all the peppers i have so far have not had BER i had it bad with my bells last year and i have 3 peppers on it now so my fingers are crossed that i solved this particular problem.
