In response to the increased interest in home vegetable gardening
‘Aristotle’ bell pepper is a 2011 Mississippi Medallion selection.
Aristotle is an extremely productive bell pepper that matures in about
75 days from transplant. The 4-lobed fruit are blocky being
approximately 4 inches by 4 inches and have thick walls. Mature fruit
are a bright, glossy dark green to an intense brilliant red when fully
ripe. This pepper resists fruit purpling during time of summer stress.
‘Aristotle’ is a selection that will perform well both in both the home
garden as well as in commercial market production. ‘Aristotle’ bell
pepper shows resistance to bacterial leaf spot (races 1-3), potato virus
Y, and tobacco mosaic virus.
