Sweet chocolate-This is a pepper, not a confection! The fruit are actually bland and tasteless for a sweet pepper, but the colour is exactly the colour of milk chocolate. Sweet chocolate is very productive, very attractive, and very reliable, especially if conditions have been a bit cool. Early season.
Chocolate Boy- A very large bell, thick walled, upright plants, Moderate productivity.Mid season
Marconi Red-About 150mm long by about 60mm wide at the shoulders, gradually tapering to a blunt tip. The plants are tall (around 80cms) and narrow, and tend to fall over when fully laden. They definitely need to be staked. Mid season.
Lipstick-Despite the off-putting name, this is probably the second best outdoor sweet capsicum it is possible to grow. The plants crop very well, they are early, and don't drop their flowers if the weather turns unseasonally cool. The fruit are glossy red, about 100mm long, with thick walls, sweet, no bitterness or off flavours. Early season.
CHERRY & MINIBELL

Mini -Available in both a red and a yellow form, these are perfect miniature bells. They are astoundingly productive, early, and suitable for pickling whole as well as fresh eating.
Nardello Sweet, medium thick walled peppers. This cultivar is noted for both it's flavor and it's productivity.
