disease or sunburn on pepper plants?

Posted by PepperNoob none (My Page) on

I have some brown looking spots on my banana peppers leaves and some kind of spots on my bell peppers. I am wondering if anybody may be able to help me identify what it is and how to treat it. It seemed to just be on the bell peppers then I sprayed a insecticidal soap now all the leaves on my banana peppers and bell peppers look like that which is shown in the photos. I also have four other plants that seem fine. Is it bacterial leaf spot or sunburn?

RE: disease or sunburn on pepper plants?

1st picture looks like some sunburn...maybe from droplets (probably water)...but there does look like a piercing/chewing insect got a hold of one spot.

2nd picture is just some random anthocyanin pigment coloration...nothing to worry about given how much light it seems you're giving your plants. It's similar to the coloration that sometimes happens at stem joints.
