Why are some of my peppers going soft and mushy?
Maine et Loire, France
I'm growing several different varieties of sweet pepper in my polytunnel.
One variety in particular, a long tapering type (grown from collected seed) has produced fruit which on the point of ripening has turned soft and mushy, rotting on the plant. The bell type peppers are fine, and the green immature fruit are ok to eat.
The plants look 100% healthy.
Does anyone have any idea what causes this?
