I just grew my first batch of ghost peppers and made some ghost pepper salsa with it. Some peppers had black inside, possibly mold but I cut around it and used the non moldy parts.

Can those still make me sick or cause damage? I ate a little the other night but read more up on it this mourning and scared the crap out of me (literally, stomach is not handling they well haha). Any one else do the same and end up fine?

Sounds like those peppers were really jealous in the end.

Here is what the USDA has to say about moldy food. There is even a handy chart at the bottom of the article for the TL, DR crowd: https://www.fsis.usd...erous_/ct_index

Looks like peppers are potentially okay to cut around for the most part!
