Gardening Jones shares some varieties of sweet peppers you may want to check out.

We haven't tried all these sweet peppers yet, but thought we would share what got our attention. Note that we are not affiliated with the companies we have linked. We just added those in case you wanted to get a look at the fruit.

Note the DTM or Days to Maturity are for transplants. HL stands for heirloom and would include open pollinated plants. F1 refers to any hybrid.
