Hi, I am fairly new to gardening and need help to understand what is eating my jalapeno plant. I prefer natural remedies, but will use commercial pesticide if absolutely needed...

Thanks for your time!

Looks like a rip to me. Wind damage?

Do you have a cat? Mine are always trying to sample my plants' leaves.

No, no cats....maybe a stray one outside? Should I cut those leaves or leave them alone?

I agree something caused damage to the leaves, animal or wind. I would leave the leaves on as they are still producing food for the plant. Once new leaves form the plant will probably drop those leaves on its own.
