I'm wondering if anyone knows what may be going on with my cajun bell pepper plant? A few of the leaves have some black stuff on them. It is not dirt and does not wipe off. I cut off and removed the leaves that look effected.

The plants look pretty healthy, but I would expect to see more leaves. Have you had a lot of sun lately? It is quite possible that the leaves are making their own sunscreen using anthocyanins. You can see evidence of the pigment at the stem joints.

That being said, it could also be a nutrition deficiency, most likely a lack of phosphorus. The leaves that are unaffected also look a bit yellow as well. You may need to give the plants a bit of plant food, some folks use liquid kelp, fish emulsion, Garden Tone, etc.
If you choose to fertilize, do a little research on how fertilizers work, what the numbers on the label means ans DO follow the label directions. More is not necessarily better.

Good luck.

Yes, we have had lots of sun lately with only a few clouds and tems in the 80s and 90s. Yesterday the temp got to 100 for the first time in a long time. I'll get a soil tester and see what I'm missing. My other pepper plants are doing fine and they are green, red, yellow, and orange bell peppers. As for the lack of leaves I've removed some of the larger ones in hopes that the smaller ones would grow and remain uneffected. So far so good.
