Not per se, but often happens. Any stress throughout growing can cause this. If it's just climate related, regular watering and feeding means, you won't have the rest like that, hopefully.

Also, variety. Different sizes of fruit.

I bet they crunch well and taste good though. :)

Might also be the variety as well. I grew "mini-bell mixed" last year and got loads of fruit different colours and shapes but none bigger than a small orange.

That's true. We have in the past grown a variety called "Patio Pepper". They grew to the size of the fruits in a jar of Peppadew. :)
