Bell Boy


A long-serving sweet pepper that produces blocky, thick-fleshed fruit.


Capsicum annuum

Hybrid. A long-serving sweet pepper that has been grown in Britain since at least 1978.  The thick-fleshed fruit are large and blocky, and turn from green to red as they ripen. They can be eaten at either stage of maturity, though they are sweeter when red.

The medium-tall plants can be grown either in the ground or in pots 7.5 to 10 litres in size. The plants become top heavy as fruit production progresses, and need support so that they don’t fall over. 

Approximate number of seeds per pack: 10
