My peppers are doing well and I am trying to wait until they turn red.  I noticed yesterday that one of them is developing a black skin towards the bottom of the pepper.  Any ideas on what this is and how to cure it so I can wait for the reds?

A thought?  Blossom end rot??  At least this is what I saw on tomatoes.

Could you take a photo? Might help someone else to ID your problem.

They get black if the peppers touch the ground.

When the temps were uneven I saw black smudge and streaks particularly on sweet banana pepp.  When those increased in warmer stable temperatures  the blackness lightened up and/or disappeared.
Maybe it's weather related in your case too. Also in my case they did not touch the ground.

If the pepper has healthy living tissue and your garden gets a lot of sun, it is most likely Anthocyanin, the fruit's own sunscreen. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthocyanin

If the black is clearly a diseased lesion, it could be a number of things, including fungus or perhaps under watering.

Please post a photo.

The pepper looks perfectly healthy to me - no disease.
