I've had to throw away 2 nice sized peppers (one dropped off and the other came off to the touch this morning) because of this issue. What is causing them to rot like that? The other peppers look awesome!!! The plants themselves are amazing, very healthy. See.... These plants have quite a few peppers on them (2 plants) And yes, those are zinnia and cosmos seeds...I even put a few okra seeds in there this past Sunday.
