Hello, I have a range of chillis in, - jalapenos, banana, birdseye. Some of the larger chillis have started getting brown spots, that spread, until the whole chilli goes brown and hard. It's not affecting all the chillis on the plant. I thought it could be blosssom end rot, but it is not actually starting on the blossom end, but rather somewhere around the middle or lower end. Any thoughts?

Hi, I'm growing Birdseye and jalapeños at the moment. The Birdseye is doing well but the leaves on the jalapeño are turning yellow. The fruit continue to look healthy! I live in coastal south eastern Australia, but it hasn't been too cold yet. Any ideas?
