Revolution is another that does well but the skin is tougher on it than some bells. I think I have about 8 different varieties of bells and they all seem to be setting good now and I should have some good peppers come fall if no disaster befalls them. I am having a heck of a time with aphids on the peppers at the shady end of my garden.

I only fertilized the peppers once this year with Tomato Tone, but I make sure they have plenty of water and it seems to be working.
