I just tried an Aji Fantasy. Very photogenic and beautiful pepper but I didn't like the taste. It smelled and tasted too much like a bell pepper.

 

What are some sweet peppers that aren't reminiscent of bells?

The Brazilian Starfish i had this year were super sweet and if you stayed away from the seeds they dont have much heat. Bishops Crown are popular too and i think they are milder?

I'll soon be picking up a box with a couple of Bishop's Crowns. I'll report back what I think of those.

I love Corbaci Sweets (but they are annuums).  Come to think of it, I should grow them again this year.


So many peppers, so little time!             GO  BUCKEYES !            Anymore, it seems the only thing I get done quickly is get older

- Piquillo de Lodosa

- Stavros

- Tap De Corti

 

These are all no heat annuums that don't taste like bell peppers.

 


...but I might be wrong...

On addition to the other excellent suggestions above:
Cream Fataliis.
Habanadas.
NuMex Trick Or Treat.
Ecuador Sweet.
Frontera Sweet.
Puerto Rican No-Heat.

I've grown all of those, plus both the Red and Orange NuMex Suaves. Fronteras tasted best, I think. Had some heat, not much. Had Bonnet-ish tones in the flavor profile.

Trick Or Treats had almost no heat; looked like and tasted like Orange Habs. Super-productive. I'd love to grow them again.

The Nadas were productive. Tasted like no-heat Habs, as they were meant to, but the pods are to attenuated and pointy. I grew them instead of Trick Or Treats this year; I prefer the Trick Or Treat BC e PS stay firth and fresh longer. I found you wanna eat the Nadas by the next day.

My wife loves the Cream Fataliis. I like them plenty. Not sure why they call then Fataliis though. Look different, taste different, very very little heat.

I grew Bishops Crowns this year. Great plant; took a while but if produced a shit ton of unique and tasty pods. Definitely a touch hotter than the other varieties discussed here so far, but still on the mild side. This one BC plant was my first and only baccatum; definitely want to grow note in future years. I am sure there are plenty of low-heat baccatums available.

You are entering the buttocks with the spicy hand of Chinese pepper? And pleasure from this low pepper? I am not sure but the scorpion pepper musk when raw, is the sexual experience. This is granted, and evident in the taste, and the woman jealous.

I find store bought sweet peppers bitter, would they be worth growing next year? I plan on growing the bishops crown but I might add some stuff.

My Bishop's Crown were huge, productive and just super tasty this year - and also very late ripening - but had absolutely zero perceptible heat to me. The Starfish growing next to them had some heat, but minimal flavor.

 

Was thinking if they happened to cross, and some of those seeds took root...

Not much to tell. Yellow low heat chinense. Got the seeds from Semillas 2 years back. As of last year, Duffy started carrying them, too, at twice the price. They ain't ubiquitous, but you can definitely find them...

Peruvian aji dulce.

Absolutely no heat, great Chinense flavor, huge pods, and thick enough walls for stuffing😀

Those look awesome.  I was about to call them "mini" stuffed peppers, but they're not really all that mini, are they?
