Organic Pepper: Sweet - California Wonder (250 mg)- Heirloom, Non-GMO Seeds
California Wonder Peppers, also known as Bell Peppers, are a sweet source of vitamin C that also adds nice crunch to a salad or vibrant flavor to sauteed or roasted vegetables. Declare your food independence and grow Organic Bell Peppers in your own garden. Organic pepper seeds from Patriot Seeds are 100% heirloom, Non-GMO, and non-hybrid. They are also open-pollinated, so you can grow, harvest, and replant your Bell Pepper crop endlessly. You can store the unused seeds for 5+ years.

Organic Pepper: Sweet - California Wonder Planting Instructions:
Plant seeds in full sun ¼” deep and 12 to 24” apart. Start the seeds indoors in a warm, sunny location. If the plants do not get enough light, they will be leggy and unproductive. Don't hurry to transplant outside. To harden plants for transplanting, expose them to a couple of days of temperatures between 60 and 65°F and reduced water. Set plants outside 2-3 weeks after the last frost and when the soil has warmed. Plant them 1 to 2’ apart, in rows 2 to 3’ apart, or spaced about 14 to 16” apart in raised beds.

Organic Pepper: Sweet - California Wonder Harvesting Instructions:
Bell peppers are ready to harvest when they are firm and shiny with a crisp texture. Clip the fruits from the plant with garden shears rather than pulling them off. It is best to harvest them when they are smaller toward the beginning of summer. Frequent harvesting will encourage near-continuous fruit production. Fully mature bell peppers are 4 to 5” long and have full, well-formed lobes. Harvesting can continue until the first frost in the fall.

Did You Know This About California Wonder Peppers?

Fast Growing January 31, 2017
Reviewer: Stephen Permar from Anson, TX United States  
Planted these seeds in the little starter pots about a week ago.  In 3 days they were already sprouting up! Will be putting them out in the garden middle or late February. If these things put out good veggies? I will be buying your seeds for a lifetime.

So far so good. September 13, 2016
Reviewer: Linda from Chicago, IL United States  
I haven't had a chance to plant the seeds yet to see what kind of yield we're looking at, but the order process was smooth, came in a timely manner and everything looks good so far. I like the pouches the seeds came in. Looks like they will be protected for the longer haul than the paper seed packets.

My favorite Bell Pepper September 4, 2016
Reviewer: Max from Southern Michigan  
The California Wonder produces large, thick, and sweet fruits. I've had outstanding success growing them. I use raised beds and red plastic sheet/mulch. You can get it from Gurneys. The plastic warms the soil which is important in northern areas and allows you to control moisture. Peppers don't like a lot of water. I use soaker hose under the plastic as needed and that's not a lot.

If you're wondering about survival and sustainability; this year, I used seed from a package that I opened 3 YEARS AGO. Still had over 80% germination and healthy plants. Re-seal the zip lock package the seeds came in and store them in a cool dry place. I've had the same success with the Roma tomato seeds.
