Jalapeno leaves

Half of my jalapeno plants leaves are curling up and getting wrinkly. It is only happening to the top leaves of the plant. I have other Jalepeno plants in the same row with no problems. What is causing this?

Check the new growth closely for aphids. Feeding of aphids often causes curling and distortion of new growth. You can control aphids with insecticidal soap. Even forceful sprays of water will dislodge most of them.
