Is this a serious problem with some peppers?? I've never once had a pepper of any variety develop BER.

I don't think it's serious but in areas of very high humidity, it can be a problem. I think BER is usually a calcium deficiency but can also be caused by humidity. We had so much rain last summer, my pepper and tomatoes both suffered. Sad
