I've been wondering what Orange California Wonder is like.
Etiude is one that looks promising. Never tried it, though, but I've been wanting to for years.
Flavorburst F1 is supposed to taste excellent.
I've heard great things about Orange Bell, too (before it was at Baker Creek). I've been wanting to try it for years, too. It's hard to say whether there are multiple breeds going by this name.
It's my observation that orange bell peppers in general get high marks. I'd love to hear others comment on that.
Orange Sun gets good reviews, too.
USDA hardiness zone: 6
Elevation: 2,260 feet
Flavorburst F1 is also very good and productive for me but it's a yellow bell not orange.
I got a free packet of 'Orange Bell' (Baker Creek) when I ordered some AG19 from Dripworks a few years back but I never grew it out because I didn't see a need to replace Gourmet.

Botanical Interests carries Orange Sun bell pepper.greenthumbomaha wrote: ↑Tue Feb 11, 2020 5:45 pmLooking for suggestions for an orange bell pepper with great taste. I was surprised to see only one variety, Orange Sun, in my seed stash. Only 4 seeds in a package several years old, and it isn't listed on the Burpee website anymore. I have Lipstick, Yummy, etc., but want that bell for whatever. A supermarket saved seed was horrid when I tried it years back. Any pluses or minuses on regular sized orange bells you have trialed? Looking on High Mowing and Rare Seeds since I've already placed an order and don't wish to incur shipping fees for one packet, but open to all if needed.
