Why are bell peppers called like that?

We know sweet peppers as large, hollow, thick-fleshed vegetables (technically a fruit, though try to find someone who cares), but the original strain was named “bell” for a very good reason. It had a rather hard, thin wall, and contained an elongated vestigial stigma inside. Buy bell peppers online at Anata India.
