    That may be an indication that they are a bit stressed. The plant isn't big enough to hold the fruit yet. It may be wise to pinch them off. What chilli cariety is it?

    Yep as Scarlet says, I would tend towards pinching them off..Plants are probably too small yet..

    Mine are all still tiny. Most are about an inch tall. One or two are about 2 inches tall.

    Overwintered plants are now starting to take off

    I have a particularly good Orange Habanero plant which has already flowered and produced tiny fruits. I've given it a slight pruning and transfered to a bigger pot. Will be interesting to see how much bigger and more productive it will be in its second year.
