Default Sweet red peppers for a beginner

It's been so long since I grew peppers that I'm practically a beginner.

I'm looking to try to grow a few peppers this season as long as they turn red and are not hot at all.

I was looking at Jimmy Nardello and King of the North but I really have no idea what I'm doing.

Just looking for suggestions for good sweet red pepper varieties for a new pepper grower.

Thanks

Jim

Try Lipstick. I like it red/ripe and for me it's much more prolific than bell peppers and possibly sweeter too.

Every time I hear about Jimmy Nardello, it's something good.

I can vouch for Jimmy Nardello, and Lipstick too. One thing I'll say for Jimmy N. it is just so richly tasty everyone loves it even though it is pretty thin fleshed and really a fryer, we eat them up raw as well. Lipstick has the juicy crunchy thick walled sweet pepper thing, earlier than most and a very respectable pepper.
Good choices, both of them.
