The standard bell pepper for many decades, Californian Wonder was introduced in 1928 and is still the largest open-pollinated, heirloom bell pepper that you can grow, and a big improvement over the earlier bells. Sweet Pepper Californian Wonder is the widely adapted standard variety that is a favorite with gardeners and widely used for commercial production. The plant produces well and does well in both cool and warm weather. It consistently produces large yields of blocky, four-lobed thick-walled fruit that are mild and sweet, tender and flavourful. Resistant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus, the plant is medium tall, 60 to 70cm (24 to 28in) with good foliage cover which provides good scald protection for the fruits. Each plant produces 4 to 5 wonderfully sweet bell peppers.
This versatile sweet pepper produces large glossy green fruits which mature to red the longer you leave them on the plant. The fruits average 170 grams (6oz) and measure 10 x 12cm (4in x 4¾in).
Perfect for all cooking uses from salads, to stir-fries, grilling, stuffing and using in stews and casseroles.

Germination; Sow indoors about 8 weeks before last expected frost date. Sow 6mm deep into moist well-drained seed compost. Ideal temp. 21°C. Germination takes 10-14 days. Once germinated grow on in cooler conditions 15-18°C. Plant out once danger of frost has passed, ideally when the plant is 10-15cm tall with 30cm spacing.
Growing; Grow in the greenhouse or a sheltered sunny spot in the garden. If planting out temp. must be warm, may benefit from fleece protection until the end June. Be gentle when transplanting to prevent damage to the fragile root or stem. Sprinkle with water with diluted fertiliser in it. May be fertilised throughout growing period every 3-4 weeks. Water 1-2 times per week. May benefit from staking.
Cultivation; Fruit is green when young maturing to red or yellow. Fruit can be picked a little unripe and be allowed to ripen on a windowsill. Best to cut the fruit from the stem rather than pulling off. Harvest will continue until first frosts. Prone to aphid and whitefly attack control as required as these can damage your crop. Retain seeds from fruit, dry for 24 hours on paper towel. Seed may be sown the following spring.
