The USDA Agriculture Census for 2002 reported 225 acres of bell peppers grown in Indiana. Production is scattered across the state, with greater concentrations of farms in northern counties. Wholesale prices are highest for large, blocky peppers. Eight bell pepper cultivars were evaluated at the Pinney-Purdue Ag Center in Wanatah, Indiana. Characteristics of interest included yield, and fruit quality, size and shape.
