A tried-and-true red sweet bell pepper. For many years on our farm, Purple Beauty has been our go-to bell pepper variety (and we always make sure to let people know that it will also eventually ripen red), but California Wonder is the choice variety if you’re looking for a sweet red bell. This heirloom was originally introduced by Burpee Seed Company in the late 1920s and has remained remarkably productive over the decades, even compared to modern varieties. Stout plants yield large fruits that start green and then ripen red. Will produce late until the fall in warmer climates such as ours.
70 days from transplant; 100 from seed. Annual.
