I've been trying to find an American seed source for "Orange Baby" to no avail. Sources in the U.K. are plentiful but they do not or cannot ship to he U.S. Has anyone here grown this variety and possibly have some seed for sale or trade?

It's a mini-bell,said to be very productive. It certainly is a beautiful plant in the pictures I've seen, loaded with bright orange peppers. You can search "sweet pepper Orange Baby" and a number of websites from the U.K. will turn up and they'll have images.

I have seeds for a non bell/mini bell type pepper called Mini Sweets.
It looks similar to Sweet orange babies.
Mini sweets come in Orange Yellow or red.
Very prolific and sweet.

A pic and recipe of mini sweets(stuffed).

From what I've read each color is a different plant,not a color change when ripening.
I have a lot of seeds but haven't grown them out yet.They are a pack of mixed colors.
They just sprouted,I'll know what is what at seasons end.

That's normal. Most bells start out green or purplish, then turn yellow, red or orange when ripe. There are always exceptions, but the ones I know about are the little hot types.

Plant variety names aren't necessarily the same from country to country. I'm not sure how naming conventions work, to be honest, but have run into instances of the same plant with different "registered" names in different places. Sometimes the preferred variety name is already in use and can't be patented or copyrighted; sometimes the name is chosen to appeal to the local populace; and of course, that's just accounting for the English-speaking countries.
