Mexibelle Pepper

 | 
  • Light: Full sun
  • Fruit size: 5 inches by 4 inches

  • Plant spacing: 18 to 24 inches
  • Scoville heat units: 100 to 500 (mild)

This unique hybrid pepper combines the characteristics of bell and hot peppers to produce a bell with a kick. Mexibelle bears large, flat, wide, bell-shaped peppers that mature from green to red. Remove the seed core and ribs for milder taste. An All America winner, it grows well throughout the country. It will not cause nearby bell peppers to produce hot fruits, but could cross-pollinate with them and produce seeds that would affect next year’s crop if you save seed.
