Default Any Ideas?

Going to attempt to post picture of 2 poblanos and another variety of peppers I have planted this year. Any idea what is going on with them? Sunscald? Insect bites?

hello, although not right on the ends, I think this represents blossom end rot, a calcium deficiency problem that can affect peppers as well as tomatoes.

Never seen that. Never seen black poblanos, either, so maybe there is some sunscald involved.

How many of the pods on these plants are affected this way?

What do the innards look like? Any obvious mold/fungus?

It's BER. I get some most years on my earliest Poblanos. Here is a Google image.

It looks like sun scald to me and my poblanos turn a dark color like that too.

The one on the right definitely looks like sun scald and I'm not sure on the other two. If it isn't affecting many of the peppers then I wouldn't worry unless it gets worse. I put up shade cloth for one of my pepper beds and I am seeing far less of that than in the bed with no protection.
