Leaves also curl as a result of any 'shock.' One common shock is 
running well water (55degrees) to their roots via drip  when the 
plants themselves are in 90 degree heat.

That's how I curled a bunch of my leaves. ;-)

 From all the books I've checked, leaf curl (of this sort) does not 
affect yield.
