My peppers are getting rotten spots before they get bigger than quarter size. almost like blossom end rot, but not always on the bottom sometimes on the side. I sprayed them with something i bought for blossom end rot for my tomatoes, but no improvement. What can i do and what causes this?

If you see tiny white spots before the spots turn rotten, it's an insect problem or the result of sunscald. You might try cutting open one of the affected peppers to look for little worms. If you find them, you'll want to use Rotenone or other organic insecticides to help control the pests. In the case of sunscald, try providing a little protection from the hot summer sunshine. good luck with your peppers.
