Are these cayenne's safe to eat?

Phantom2487July 27, 2014

I just picked them to chop up for a pizza I'm about to make, and was curious if the real nasty curling is indicative of not being healthy for me to eat?

Half the peppers are straight(ish) and the rest look like these. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Thanks!

These peppers don't know they should be straight...and don't care much.

Feel free to use them.

The bottom right one is crazy looking. I have never seen a pepper like that before.

Probably they are from some cross pollination. But from what I have just learned, probably they are a kind of Cayenne.

Those actually look more like the cow horns I've grown.

Yes they are safe to eat.
