I was doing my daily routine check on my plants a couple of days ago and found some spots which concerened me into a small panic. I cut the Jolokia up to see if I could detect something on the inside, don't ask me why, I have no idea what I'm doing atm. With some help from a fellow grower we came to the conclusion that it was the fruits being sunscalded.

 

But tonight while doing another check I found more fruits with the same kind of spots on the same plants even though there has been a rainy couple of days. The plants effected are my Bhut Jolokia and a Malawi Birds Eye.

 

I attached pictures from both of the times I found spots on my fruits. Can someone please help me identify if this truly is sunsclading or are we talking about some kind of fungus or pest?

 

Best regards Kris

Even though the smaller spots on the Bhut are located in the crevices of the fruit?
