In my green house I have a couple of lovely and healthy green pepper plants. I have a lot of peppers on the plants and the big ones are about the size of a tomato. But two of the peppers seem to rotting right on the plant. What coule be wrong?

could be :Alternaria rot" caused by a fungas , the fungas enters a wound(sunscalds or punture) Dusty black spores on fruit spos are charcteristic . Or"Blossom End rot caused by insuffuceient calcium when fruit are forming , this occurs in Tomatoes as well.
