Pepper - Cal Wonder
Capsicum annuum Tender Annual
Heirloom. Cal Wonder forms large, blocky, thick-walled peppers with 3-4 large lobes perfect for stuffing. The glossy, deep-green peppers turn red at maturity. Cal Wonder's upright plants are prolific producers. This is the leading market and shipping pepper, and is aloud a good home garden variety.
Did You Know? Sweet peppers are loaded with vitamins C and A. Red peppers contain twice the vitamin C and eleven times the beta carotene of green peppers.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply-worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Wter deeply, but don't over water.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct seeding is not recommended. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control. Blossom pruning will improve fruit size.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. These peppers may be harvested from the green stage through the color changes. Cal Wonder freezes well.
