I have never seen this before, about 10 of my pods are growing like this. Not sure if its a mutation or some crazy anamoly. Does anyone know what causes this and is it detrimental to the plant?
here's the same pod

The only time I had that happen was to my Kung Pao, not as sevear, only one or two curl up's. Not sure the cause but out of about 200+ pods maybe 3 or 4 had it. Maybe pollination issue is my best guess. But pepper tasted just fine.
It sure is funky, whatever it is!
that actually happened on one of my bell peppers this season and it's 1 of 2 that i was so far able to harvest. will post pic(s) tomorrow.
