Some of my chillies look dead on the ends, like the pic below. Should I cut them off so the plant doesn't keep trying to sustain them, or will they become normal when they grow a bit more?

Question about growing chillies
21-03-2014 10:29 #2
Cut them off! Healthy chillis don't look like that. I'm not sure what the issue is with them but I'm pretty sure they won't grow out normal lol. When mine are deformed or have markings they remain as they mature.

Also, do yours stay green and full size for ages, like 6+ weeks before they go red? Mine seem to take soooo long to ripen!

Lol. Yep you can pick them if you want green as they are milder. The Birdseye ones stay upright. I posted a pic of another variety - the penis pepper lol. That one hangs down.
But yeah, I grow a few types and they don't look like yours lol.

I feel so stupid, you know what was "wrong" with them? The dead flower was still sitting on the end of it; it just needed to be brushed off then they looked perfect. Shame I cut 2 off before realizing hahahaha

Oh sh1t hahaha........ The flowers always disintegrate on mine.... Sorry I told you to cut them off 😁
