coloration in chilli pepper

Chilli Pepper    Morocco

Good morning, our chilli peppers of this variety are getting dark irregular patchs, the red fruits are not totally red but with some strange discoloration. The plants are healthy, the leaves does not have any discoloration. Why is this happening?. Big temperature changes maybe?.

Thank you and regards.

During the natural ripening process the mature green chili peppers exhibit black patches or dark streaks on them. Generally it starts with green and ripen to orange or red color. These patches are temporary, mainly caused by increase in sugar content during ripening.
