Whups wrong pepper post earlier. Had a little trouble here being click happy. So were those old seeds? Do you use a lot of pesticide? Are those the first of the fruiting production?No, didn't know that was a thing. I'm in Utah and we have had a hot and dry year.
They are Bonnie plants bought from lowes. No pesticides just a mix of raised bed soil and ground dirt. They are some of the lower/first fruits. It has been much slower this year compared to last.
You probably want to look into some shade cloth. The peppers will grow larger if you can ease the heat stress. The black solar screen is pretty durable and lasts a lot of years, but folks here will also use some translucent white material. So how about the drying winds?Not sure exactly it's been in triple digits or high 90s most of the time here
Unless those malformed peppers continue to show up I do not think you have anything to fix. I would prune them off if you won't be using them. Energy for fruiting is hard to come by when the plant is fighting too much heat.Thanks I will look at those. Not to much for winds
