wrinkled leaves

I have Tamatillos that the top of the plants the leaves are wrinkled and none producing. The none wrinkled areas are producing. I had the same thing with hawaiian peppers so I cut the plant down to the ground. The pepper grew a new stalk and now produces well. Does anyone know how to treat the wrinkled leaves or what is the cause.

Did you look for bugs?

RE: wrinkled leaves

I've had leaves go wrinkly on tomatillos, tomatoes, and peppers too. From careful journaling, I determined that stress to the plants causes it. In California, the stress was cold weather. Here in Hawaii the stress tends to be caused by underwatering (since cold isn't a problem).

Good luck.
