Is this sunscald on my pepper??

Hi, I picked this pepper today and was wondering if I should eat it. I had another one that had this damage worse and just put it in the compost. Is this sunscald or something else? The brown area feels very thin and is slightly sunken in.

IMO, that's sunscald.

I agree, sunscald. Just cut that area out and the rest will be fine to eat.
