California Wonder Red Sweet Pepper – America’s Favorite Bell Pepper

After nearly a century, this is still the standard by which all other bell peppers are judged, and widely considered the best in class. Since being introduced in 1928 the peppers are always well-formed with sweet-flavored, thick-fleshed fruits beginning as glossy green, three- to four-lobed blocky globes that mature to a bright red. Pick either at the green, yellow-orange or red stage for different flavors. Easily becomes the go-to staple for stuffing, chopping into salads, roasting, or grilling.

Highly productive plants are 18 - 24" tall, upright, sturdy and hardy. Easy-growing with good leaf cover shading the fruits, it produces continually in good conditions.  

History

Indigenous to Central and South America, peppers were developed into a crop plant around 3,000 BC or perhaps even earlier. Columbus introduced Capsicum into Europe and it also spread to Africa and Asia.
