I have sworn off bells, if the temps dip during pollination you get warped and runty fruits. I've done that too many times to even try bells again.
I have had the best luck with albino bullnose, and Bulgarian ratatund (a sheepnose variety). I've also had good yields from just about every paprika pepper I have tried, and Italian corni de toro's have surprised me by doing astonishingly well.
This year's sweet pepper experiment is White Lakes. I have had great luck with Russian tomatoes, so I thought I would give a Russian pepper a try. They germinated very quickly and are growing well, so I have great hopes of them.

What varieties do well for you?

I had a terrible experience with bells last year, my first SFG year. I won't do them again. But the jalapenos did great!

This year I've followed the success of others on the forum and planted Banana Peppers and Italian Bull Horn that GWN sent me. So far some have spouted so we'll see what happens.

I don't bother with sweet pepper varieties, I stick to a few sorranos and poblanos.

I grew mini red bell peppers last year and they produced nicely and had good flavor, but a lot of seeds.

This year I'm going to try 6-8 plants of Yummy Peppers, I love these kind of pepper from the store, very sweet, crisp and very little seeds.

http://www.jungseed.com/dp.asp?pID=03247&c=620&p=Yummy+Mix+Pepper

I tried California Wonder 3000 bells last year and had similar issues with production. This year I'm trying 2 plants of King of the North--which are supposed to produce well.

And I know I'm not in the Mid-Atlantic, but southern WI and southwestern NY likely have similar summer growing conditions.

Depending how far south you are the main difference would be east-west orientation to the lakes. I am close enough to Lake Erie to get pounded by the lake effect storms, and far enough away to miss out on the slightly warmer lakeshore climate. I am 10 miles north of PA, right down in the "toe" of the state.

My hot peppers this year are Black Hungarians (definitely going in the flower beds) Leutschauer paprika, and Romanian hots.
I would like some more traditional East Indian and Caribbean hots, but we have household members that do not respond well to hot spice. Thus a compromise, planting milder varieties, was in order.

Those Italian bullhorn sweets (corni de toro, I didn't think about it, we have a lot of Italians here in town and that is what they are called locally. Same name, different language.) really do very well. It was terribly sad the last time I grew bells. You had the fully ripe weeny little button bells growing right next to some big yellow bullhorns. It was an exceptional year for the bullhorns, and that really pointed up the sorry state of the bells.

I noticed that the past two years my bell peppers have not been growing well. I get maybe 8-10 for the season and then nothing or they go bad. I had tried California Wonder and it did not do well.
Last year I tried a mini bell, that did better but my hubby likes the regular bell peppers better (I don't eat peppers).
I did notice if anyone grew hot peppers they did very well with them. Very strange.
This year I am trying Sweet Candy Apple Hybrid Pepper plant. sunny
