My sweet banana peppers look like they are starting to fruit but I've noticed black around the stems on the top middle of plants.. I've seen overwatering, but don't think that's it. I have 3 in a box planter. Maybe under watering? I water them every other day if not every day if it looks like they need it.. Can anyone help me out? Also first time growing these so any advice would be very appreciated!!

Sometimes pepper stems do get dark streaks and spots. Its normal. From what I can see, your pepper is very healthy and happy.
