Another wonderful surprise from the GTF pepper
project, these are very early bells with thick walls,
densely set onto dwarf plants with short branches.
At the "green" eating stage 'Little Bells' are a
'Transparent'-apple yellow, ripening through orange
to a dark red at maturity. First fruit may be pointed,
becoming blocky in following sets. A visitor has
commented that these are reminiscent of 'Jingle
Bells,' once popular, now gone. Great pepper for
northern climes with short seasons. Before fall's
killing frost, we clip whole plants with remaining
fruits attached, trim leaves and hang in a cool place.
Fruit will continue to ripen on the stem for weeks.
