whats wrong with my jalapenos?
the peppers themselves seem to be turning dark/blackish while still on the plant.

Looks normal to me. Sometimes peppers have a dark blackish or purplish colouration in patches like that. I think it has something to do with sun on the fruit. It's harmless, both to the growth of the fruit and to you.
As a general rule of thumb, as long as the fruit is still firm there is nothing wrong with it. It's soft patches (or holes, of course) which indicate a problem, usually some sort of rot.
