Bhut Jolokia Internal Rot?

BigDan1(5 (WI))September 4, 2011

Hi everyone,

First season Growing the Bhut Jolokia and some of the pods develop a brown spot which appears to be insect damage but the fruits skin is in tact, and that section appears infected when cut open? Happens to those in planters (those I baby) as well as those in the Garden (on their own, ok maybe a little fish fertilizer and bone meal from tiem to time? Any Ideas? Here's a link to the PIC I just took today:

It could be Pepper Maggot. See link below. On link page you can click Google Images for examples of damage caused.

Just a shot in the dark,

Bill

Thanks Bill, I sure do appreciate the reply. I didn't notice a maggot inside but I will sure keep an eye out the next time I cut one open.

I had something similar happen with my Hungarian Wax peppers and cowhorn cayenne. I ended up putting down some calcium supplement and from then on i had no issues. Dont know what it was/is but thats what worked for me
