California Wonder 300 Pepper is an improved open-pollinated heirloom variety of the Cal Wonder large blocky bell. This variety usually produces a four-lobed thick-walled fruit that is mild and sweet and great for stuffing. Ever-bearing, upright plant produces fruits up to 4 1/2 inches long by 4 inches wide. Like most peppers, the fruit starts green and will ripen to red if left on to grow on longer.
How to grow:
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.: 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.
