Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CAPSICUM annuum 'Better Belle Hybrid Improved'( Grossum Group)
Bell Pepper, Sweet Pepper
So what makes this bell pepper better? Earlier fruiting, virus resistance and high fruit output for starters. In the warm season this popular hybrid will offer many large, sweet peppers that can be harvested green or red.
This pepper forms a large bushy plant with rigid, brittle stems and thin, broad, dark green leaves. Its flowers are inconspicuous, five-petaled and white. They are followed by large, hollow, blocky, thick fleshed-fruits that are very sweet and perfect for cooking or eating fresh. On the interior they are lined with spongy ribbing which supports many small, flattened, rounded seeds. Plants may require staking due to the sheer weight of the fruits.
Bell peppers are warm season vegetables that are easy to grow, if you can provide them with the correct conditions. Full sun, warmth, fertile, perfectly drained soil and regular feeding are required for good growth and fruit production. The ‘Better Belle Hybrid Improved’ takes 65-days from seed to harvest. Proper spacing will help with fruit production, so plant according to the grower’s guidelines.
Bell peppers are vegetable garden standbys that also do well in containers.
