SWEET BELL PEPPER: Bell peppers have a rounded, square shape with four lobes. They are hollow, with flat seeds inside. Bell peppers are the most commonly grown type of pepper in North America. Most bell peppers are harvested when they are still green, but when left to mature on the plant for a longer length of time, some peppers will turn shades of red, yellow or even purple.
The Keystone Giant Bell Pepper is an extremely large bell pepper variety that was developed from California Wonder, for not only its huge size, but also to be resistant to mosaic virus. This lovely giant has now been grown for a good many years and is widely adaptable to an assortment of climates. This great pepper variety produces a large number of large, four inch by four and three quarter inch bell peppers with very thick walls.
