Curly cayenne

My golden cayennes are as straight as an arrow. However, I also have a different variety of cayenne that I got in a trade and they are very curly. I have found conflicting information on the internet about whether this is a characteristic of the variety or if it is due to environmental stress. What is your thought? Also, if it is a characteristic of the variety can I tell which variety I have?

Thanks,
Scott

Pictures would be nice.

I believe you could have the Ristra Cayenne. Curling is characteristic of this hybrid species.

RE: Curly cayenne

Not sure exact species, but I have a red cayenne that does that too. Doesn't seem to affect the nice flavor or heat that it has..

I have Long Red Slim Cayenne and they do that all the time. I just picked 3 that looked like that.

Ok thank you. It doesn't really matter I was just curious. It looks like the straight one might be the outlier.

I grew some that looked like that a few years ago. The tag said they were "Hybrid Hungarians"

Mine looked like that when they were small and I thought nothing of it as I've always seen curly peppers before.

Not sure on specific genetics, but I got these cayennes from a rather respected local greenhouse (that does mostly organic and some hybrid plants).

They curled around everything, stems, leaves, each other, and even the cage, so might want to check them once and a while to make sure that you won't need to break them to get em free.

We were visiting a farm yesterday. They were selling peppers tagged as Cayenne that were all curly. I was thinking that they are mislabeled, as I have always envisioned Cayenne as smooth and straight. BUT now I know that I have been wrong. Live and learn !
