strange dried stuff inside pepper flower

13 years ago

I have a orange bell pepper plant that is starting to bloom. The first flower opened over the weekend but I am finding it stuffed with dried black stuff. I call it stuff since I don't know what it is but it basically looks like very finely chopped old leaves. I mulch with chopped up leaves in that bed. So far only that one flower has this. My other peppers seem to flower and set fruits just fine. Any ideas? I even emptied it out and it got stuffed with it again.
