I'm growing a Cajun Belle bell pepper in my sun room. Anyone know how many Scovilles? It tastes hotter than a jalapeno.

Share a photo of your favorite pepper, to eat, grow, whatever! And let us know what it is. 🌶

They are mild to medium. Seems the range is 500 to 4,000 SHU. Jalapeños are more around your 5000 SHU range (like all hot peppers, jalapeños can be milder or hotter). So Cajun Belles can be comparable in heat to a jalapeño. The longer they stay on the plant, the warmer they get.
