  • Fruit size: 2 to 3 inches long, lobed

  • Scoville heat units: 100 to 1,000 (mild)

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Pepper I absolutely love this pepper! It is not mild at all, but also consider I do not pluck mine when it is green, I wait until it's full red. I love spicy food, from Mexican to Korean, and this is delicious! The taste in my opinion, is between a red bell and habanero pepper. The heat is between jalapeño and habanero. I live in AZ, so I give this plant partial sun, but does just as well in full sun. My plant is still growing as is about 6 inches tall, and doesnt have large enough leaves to protect the fruit yet. I already have harvested two, and one is currently growing. I'm satisfied with this, and can't wait for Home Depot to get these in again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet with super kick These are growing very well and producing heavily in my raised bed garden filled with native soil. When red they have a very sweet burst when bitten into followed by a sharp heat that comes on strong. They are hotter than my Bonnie Jalapeno hot peppers. Pick them green to light yellow for less heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAJUN BELLE: MILD WITH A LITTLE ZING My husband fell in love with these peppers. He is prone to indigestion on commercially grown bell peppers and was so excited he was able to eat the Cajun Belle without regret. He specifically said we have to order these for the garden this year. Sweet and spicy in one. This pepper is a keeper!

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!
