Very large, nicely-shaped bell peppers with excellent taste and no disease. Good production (average 5 red peppers per plant). I had excellent results in 2005, with plenty of ripe peppers; but my 2006 crop gave me just a few half-ripe peppers by the time the frost hit. I will plant Beauty Bell again ... but I will continue my search for a red bell pepper that matures in the cool nights and short growing season of Mountain Virginia.
