Answer: There are several factors that can influence pepper size and quality. Peppers are a heat-loving crop, and are particularly sensitive to environmental stresses, such as cool weather or inconsistent water availability. They also like high humidity. Sinceyour locale was not included in the question, I don't know if season length is a factor in getting your fruits to size up properly. Pepper plants should be generously spaced to allow plenty of sunshine to reach all parts of the plant. Water regularly -- even daily -- during dry spells. Mulch plants to conserve moisture. And during fruiting feed plants with a low-nitrogen fertilizer.
