True to its name, Cajun Belle pepper is an awesome pepper because it gives you all the flavor of a sweet pepper combined with a mild but spicy heat that adds zip to any dish. This 2010 All America winner is just plain cute, too. We love the way the little peppers ripen from lime green to orange to red. You can eat them at any stage, but the longer they stay on the plant, the warmer they get. Plants are robust and disease tolerant yet relatively small, growing about 2 feet tall by 2 feet wide. They’re ideal for small gardens or containers. Each fruit is 2 to 3 inches long, with 3 to 4 lobes to make a small, thin walled blocky miniature pepper. Allowed to remain on the plant to maturity, they turn glossy red and grow increasingly flavorful. Plants in our Alabama test garden (where the long harvest season lasts from May through October) easily yield more than 150 peppers each. Of course, yield in your garden will depend on care and the length of your warm growing season.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Cajun Belle Pepper is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome kicking taste This is my first time growing these and I am happy I added them to the garden. I only picked up one plant but I saved the seeds for next years growing pleasure . I will put in 3 or 4 plants next year. They are a great snack while harvesting in the garden or added to a salad. Giving your taste buds a treat and guest asking what did different to the salad. A must try! Five star in my opoinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exellqnt tasting pepper I was a bit hesitant after reading reviews but was glad I added this one. The flavor is reminiscent of a sweet red bell pepper with a mild kick. Mine were about half as hot as a jalapeño, perhaps people were experiencing cross pollination?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a mild pepper! I was so excited to take a taste of my very first bel pepper of the season...until it hit my lips! This is not a mild pepper. I had not even bit down when my lips and tongue were on fire! Not a good heat for me...a miserable one. I enjoy "hot" things...just not ones that bring a tear to the eye.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hotter than a jalapeño! I bought hoping for something a little different. These are way hotter than expected. I cut two up without gloves. My hands are on fire, my mouth hurts from where I bit one. My nose hurts where I wiped it with my hands. These are HOT!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from HOT This was my first year planting Cajun Bell. I was not expecting the heat. These are some hot peppers. The yield is great. I have just frozen my first harvest and still have many peppers and blooms remaining on the plants. Be sure to wear gloves and eye wear when harvesting and cutting these. I have two Cajun Bells each planted in a 5 gallon bucket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harvested so many peppers!!! I grew these last year and my one single plant produced a ton of peppers throughout the season. I had to find people to give them to. I would usually harvest about 5-7 peppers per week. Once they start growing, they don't stop until the snow hits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really hot with good flavor I agree with keithnphx. I,too,live in Phoenix and my Cajun Bells are super hot. They have brought tears to my eyes. I just have to cut them into little pieces. Plant produces enough to share with my friends. Pretty plant. I hope that my plant will last for several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was mislead also by the "mild heat" rating. But as some of the other reviews, it was a pleasant surprise! Mine were a little hotter than my jalapenos, but the flavor was outstanding! Had so many peppers I had to prop the branches because they were breaking! Love them. Unfortunately, they are not available in the Sacramento area this year, 2016. BIG BUMMER! I have searched from Woodland to Folsom, no luck. I am trying to start some seeds I saved from last years crop. Hope it works!!
