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 This is one hot pepper: I bought this pepper thinking it would be a slightly spicy one that could be enjoyed raw, at the table. Perhaps it's the soil in my Phoenix garden, but there is nothing mild about them. I LOVE hot and spicy but these turned out to be too hot for a couple of my Mexican friends. They are great for cooking and in salsa as well as challenging friends who claim to be able to eat the hottest of foods. Even the cutworms and birds passed on them. Beautiful plant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a touch of heat: I don't know if it was the seeds I used, but these small tasty, very sweet upeppers packed a lot more heat than I was expecting, which to me was a good thing. The plants did not grow very tall but produced way more peppers than any bell pepper plant that I have ever grown, probably because it is a hybrid. You will have more than enough for yourself with only a few plants, otherwise you'll find yourself giving them away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must try this pepper.: I grew these for the first time in 2011, and decided that if I can only have one type of pepper plant growing for 2012, this would be it. While I do like peppers hotter than these, the milder heat allows you to actually enjoy the flavor, rather than reaching for a glass of milk and a tissue.

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 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!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great yield, hardy plant, way hotter than jalapenos near it, just cleaning them burns fingers and makes you cough. Not a mild heat at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a couple of these Bonnie starts at a big box store last year and was extremely pleased with the taste and surprised by the heat. I think the rating may be a little off. I am a bit disappointed that I can't get the seeds from the peppers to germinate this early season though.

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.
