That happens a lot with plants that are situated side by side. One does better than the other and it doesn't seem reasonable. However, one and not the other could have a fungal disease or insects. Have you checked the underside of the leaves for aphids or other insects? Also try reversing their positions. The shorter one may be getting a bit more shade than the other.
