    Hi, do you know which variety they are - you can get some that do go chocolate brown (i think).

    Are you over-watering? Brown is usually a bit of a rot problem (uless it's a brown chilli!)

    It is the peppers that seem to be going brown and soft as if they are rotting.

    It could be that you have splashed water on the fruits and the sun scorches them. That would create a sort of soft spot where the fruit had been 'cooked'.
