Small immature peppers

"I have several different types of peppers in my garden. Jalapenos, serranos, anaheim and bell peppers. They all are turning colors at a very small size. I live in California zone 8. I water everyday. I don't know what to do to make them get big before discoloring? Thank you Susan"

Are the tips of the peppers turning black as they color up? This could be a condition called blossom end rot. It's caused by an inability of the plant to assimilate calcium, and is usually associated with soil moisture uptake problems. You indicate that you're watering every day. This may be necessary during extremely dry conditions, but usually less frequent but deeper watering is best. And to avoid damage to the roots and conserve water, it may be helpful to apply mulch around the plants.
