Wonder Bell Pepper

Wonder Bell Pepper


70 days. There seemed to be no end to the pepper production of Wonder Bell! Semi-upright plants loaded up with staggering amounts of 4-lobed fruit with a sweet, snappy bell pepper flavor. Deep green fruit ripen to a blazing red and weigh in at just about a third of a pound each! Thick walls make these a given for stuffing, slicing into salads and sandwiches, and grilling. We found the overachieving plants to be quite disease-resistant. HR: TMV, ToMV.
Also available as a conventional or grafted plant.

Capsicum annuum Our wide array of fabulous peppers, both sweet and hot, offers one of the richest sources of nutrients in the plant kingdom. Hot peppers contain capsaicin, which revs up your metabolism and reduces general inflammation in the body.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplanting and reflect edible green fruit.

Very large, healthy, and prolific plants. A large, sweet, thick-walled bell that ripens to red in 70 to 75 days in our short growing season. I love it and grow it every year!
