Chili Pepper Plants

chili plants from seed

Zone SF Bay area, Ca (just moved from CO) | chriscryer added on July 27, 2014 | Answered

I have grown some chili plants from seed and wonder why some of them curl when growing. These seeds were "found" and so I'm not sure what kind I have except the peppers are turning from green to orange (pretty) about 1-2 inches long and taste healthy. Do you know why some of them grow straight and some curl up?

It's probably caused by insufficient pollination, or by weather fluctuations -- too hot, too wet, then too dry, then hot again etc. Shouldn't affect the taste, though.
