Default Mexibell

I cant find any pictures on here of anyones Mexibell peppers. Are they really a bell pepper? I have about 12 plants in the garden and they look like oversized cherry bombs. is this normal? I wanted a bell pepper sized med/hot pepper for stuffing. these appear to be perfect for an appetizer filled with salsa at a party.

The largest mexibell is the size of a small bell pepper, but as the season progresses they tend smaller.

In my experience a year ago I got what you describe, was disappointing. But I am sure about them because I used to grow them for years. Only the last time were they small.

They should be like a 3 lobed bell pepper about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of a normal bell.

I didn't grow them this year because of the situation with my late Dad. Was lucky to get anything in the ground at all.
