Capsicum 'Californian Wonder'

 

Sweet Pepper 'Californian Wonder'

Sweet Peppers, which are, strictly speaking fruit (as they contain seeds) but are used as a vegetable, are small, upright bushes of varying sizes, with glossy, dark green leaves. The single flowers are an off-white (sometimes purplish) colour, while the stem is densely branched and up to 60cms (24 in) tall. The fruit start green, and ripen to red, orange or yellow. 'Californian Wonder' is a heritage variety, with good flavour and size, and very good for cooking as a stuffed pepper

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Late Spring

Plant container grown peppers in the greenhouse border when large enough to handle, about 2ft between plants, and water them in thoroughly, making sure you water below the leaves, as water on the leaves can cause them to rot.

 

Propagation by seed in spring

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Sow seed thinly in divided trays or individually in pots, in early Spring under glass in heat (they need a temperature of around 18 - 20 degs.C to germinate). Germination usually takes 7 - 10 days. Plant out in greenhouse border when risk of frost is passed.
