I found really nicely sized Lady Bell pepper seedlings this spring at a local nursery so had to buy and plant them. I think these are a very nice green bell for cooking or eating fresh. Would plant them again next year if I see seedlings.

I liked the Lady Bell variety so much last year that I looked for seedlings again this spring and was happy to have found them. In my opinion, the best green bell type I have ever grown. Nice plants set peppers just the right size for stuffing or anything else one might like to try. I always pick mine green, so I really can't say anything about them when they're red.
