Revolution Sweet Bell


Revolution Sweet Bell

(72 days) F-1 hybrid. Those of us who still “feel the Bern” now know that the political revolution is going to take a lot longer to mature than the pepper Revolution. Not at all hot, this fancy quality sweet bell pepper allows CR to have a red September and Donna, a zone farther north, a red October. Juicy and delicious, it boasts the stoutest square walls imaginable. Superb yields of “nice hefty thick-walled fruits,” says Maine farmer Jason Kafka, some in excess of l lb. Customer Elaine Carlson relates, “I finally had success growing good sweet peppers 12–14 oz each thanks to Kafka’s recommendation. No more thin-walled peppers for me.” Expensive seed. Resists BLS, tolerant to CMV.

Additional Information


Capsicum annuum

For all peppers, days to full-color maturity are from transplanting date.

~160 seeds/g. Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto which means ‘bite.’

Culture: Very tender, will not tolerate frost, dislike wind, will not set fruit in cold or extremely hot temperatures or in drought conditions. Start indoors in March or April. Set out in June. Black plastic highly recommended. Row cover improves fruit set in windy spots. Pick first green peppers when they reach full size to increase total yield significantly. Green peppers, though edible, are not ripe. Peppers ripen to red, yellow, orange, etc.

Minimum germination soil temperature 60°, optimal range 68-95°.


  • BLS: Bacterial Leaf Spot
  • CMV: Cucumber Mosaic Virus
  • TMV: Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Seed-saving tips: Use only the first fruits for seed; allow only 3–4 fruits per plant to grow and remove all others. Fewer fruits = larger seeds = greater seed viability. Later fruits often have germination rates of only 60%.
