HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Start California Wonder pepper seeds indoors in peat pots about 8 weeks before the last expected spring frost. Plant pepper seeds 1/4" deep and keep the soil at 80-85 degrees F until germination; provide sunlight or a grow light for 12-16 hours a day. When the outdoor temperature reaches 60-65 degrees F during the day and no less than 50 degrees F at night, transplant the seedlings 12-16" apart. Exposing the plants to the weather for several hours a day before transplanting may help prevent shock. Peppers also grow well in containers or raised beds.

Growing: Keep the soil evenly moist and weeds under control; mulching the plants may help with this. If excess heat and sun cause the plants to wilt, provide shade. California Wonder pepper seeds for planting adapt to many soil types and are resistant to tobacco mosaic virus.

Harvesting: Harvesting sweet peppers is basically a matter of personal preference regarding color and sweetness. Generally, the longer the peppers mature on the vine, the sweeter they will taste. Mature peppers, however, signal the plant to stop producing; if the peppers are picked when still at the green stage, the plant will go on producing. Always use a knife or scissors to remove peppers to prevent damage to the fragile stems.

Seed Saving: Keep in mind that peppers will cross pollinate with other varietes of pepper, so isolation or caging may be necessary to preserve genetic purity. Allow the pepper to fully mature, than cut it open and remove the pepper seeds for planting. Spread out the seeds to dry for about two weeks. Store the seeds in a cool, dry place for up to two years.

Review By Carribe Castaway

Wonder is right

I tested 8 different varieties of bell peppers seeds from the US and Europe. They were planted in a controlled environment of a greenhouse 10" apart in rows 3' apart. Plants were pruned to 2 stems. Each stem was supported by strings from the ceiling. Don't know about the Cali' part, but my experience was that there is a reason they are called Wonder. To start with, the plants are tough, sturdy and forgiving with changes in water schedules and nutrient application. However you will need some support if you prune side shoots and suckers for lager fruits.The fruits size averaged about 4" cubes. Thick walls and very tasty both green and red. Average fruit weight was 6-8oz. Great producers constant new fruit set, with the flowering nodes a little too close that crowed the fruits a bit. Be careful that the fruits hang free or you will get deformed fruit.
