I got a Carolina Reaper plant for christmas that was purchased from a local grower. Some of the fruit was already ripe so this afternoon I went out to harvest them and many of the ripened ones had blackness on various parts of the fruit.
Is this because it had already ripened and is now dying? Or is it a fungus, disease, rot, something else?
I'm attaching a couple of pictures.
Also, is there a problem with p3.jpg? It *appears* to just be a spider web growing on it but just want to make sure it's not something else. Do spider webs typically grow in the crevices of the fruit?
