Answer: Capsicums are a great plant for the veggie patch. It looks like you might have a little trouble with blossom end rot. This is usually the result of a calcium deficiency. You just need to apply some garden lime to the soil. Your variegated leaves are also likely due to a nutrient deficiency. You might want to test the pH of your soil to check if that is the source of your troubles. Otherwise apply Thrive Flower and Fruit soluble fertiliser regularly to supply the plant with all the nutrients it needs.
