Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T). Nepalese Bell - ripe fruit. 2014-10-01.


Bell-shaped pods are 3-4" across and have crispy flesh. Delicious and sweet, with just a bit of spiciness, it is one of our favorite peppers for drying or eating fresh. Ripens from light green to red. Mid-season to late. It is better to start these peppers earlier, to get a bigger harvest.
