Pepper (Sweet) Beauty Bell F1
Beauty Bell F1 produces large, thick walled square shaped fruits of dark green turning to brilliant red. They boast a good flavour and are very prolific.
These bell peppers are a great summer vegetable that can be eaten raw in salads but can also be cooked and used in many dishes such as stir fries and curries, or try them stuffed or roasted or simply chop and add to sauces.
As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse.
