Sweet California Wonder Bell Pepper is one of the most popular large bell pepper plants around. The fruit is delicious for snacking, salads, sautƩing or stuffing. These bell peppers pack plenty of crunch and vitamins, including vitamins C and A. The 4-inch fruit will be mature about 75 days after planting. Harvest some early and while green but leave enough on the plant to turn red and sweeter. Cut the stem of the pepper; avoid twisting it.

Water & Soil: Sweet Peppers are particularly vulnerable to water stress when fruiting, so keep the soil evenly moist. If not given enough water, the fruits can develop a slightly bitter flavor (and may get Blossom End Rot).
Low nitrogen. High potassium. High phosphorus. Peppers are fairly hungry plants and require lots of phosphorus and potassium, but not too much nitrogen (which may result in big vigorous plants, but few fruits).

California Wonder does not need fertilizer if growing in a rich soil. It is better to add some organic compost at planting time and to work some into a container or around the base of a garden plant a few times during summer.

Preferred temps of 60Ā° - 95Ā° F

Pepper Sweet 'California Wonder'

Depending on your chosen varieties, peppers mature between two and three months from the time you transplant outdoors. If you're in the mood for green bells, let them reach full size, form and firmness before you pick. For mature, colored peppers, let them reach full color and ripeness on the vine whenever possible. Then pick them promptly to encourage more pepper fruits to set.
