The California Wonder Pepper is a true American classic. This venerable heirloom bell pepper variety was introduced in 1928 and has been popular for generations, and for good reason: these dark green peppers are crisp, sweet, and incredibly versatile. When mature on the vine, peppers will turn a rich dark red. Whether you're cooking up a summer BBQ or putting together a hearty winter stew, the California Wonder Pepper will always deliver delicious results. So if you're looking for a pepper that can do it all, look no further than the California Wonder! 250mg ~ 25 seeds.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
