What are the pros? Easy to grow, very productive

What are the cons? Sun scald

Review:

Here in our harsh AZ sun, California Wonder does great. I harvest some green (and they have good holding power in the fridge) but prefer to let them ripen to red as they are sweeter then. Wonderful flavor. Yes, it will get sun scald if you're not careful. I rarely use shade cloth. Instead I interplant them with my tomatoes. The tomatoes give them all the shade they need. I get a very good crop of thick-walled, juicy, bells. Oh, I usually start them in Jiffy pots and plant them a week before I plant my tomatoes to give them a bit of a head start. Otherwise the tomatoes can almost choke them out. I try to control insect pests with soapy sprays and diatomaceous earth but will resort to Sevin dust if required. btw Sevin dust won't harm bees if you keep it away from the blooms.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? won't grow or produce

Review:

My plant is about a foot high and has no peppers on it. We've had a extremely hot summer and lots of rain so expected to see a few peppers. Not sure what I'm doing wrong with this one.

What are the pros? beautiful, tasty, easy

What are the cons? slow to ripen, sunscald

Review:

I love ripe bell peppers. These plants are easy to grow, except for sun scald. My first batch of peppers all had sun scald. I may be a shade cloth for next year. It's been a very hot humid summer in Missouri in 2016. They take their time to grow and mature. I went ahead and picked a bunch green. I also pick when partly ripe, and let them ripen indoors to lessen sun scald chances. I'll grow these again next year.

What are the pros? easy to grow, tasty, pretty

What are the cons? sunscald easily, slow to ripen

Review:

Overall this is a great pepper. Here in Missouri in 2016, we are having strange summer weather. Even a gardening expert at my local nursery says that St. Louis has a challenging climate for growing vegetables, due to very wet springs and very hot summers. we had the hottest June on record, then in early July, we had a patch of cool wet weather. My first few peppers had sunscald. Each plant, so far (today is July 22) has produced about 2-8 peppers. They take a long while to ripen. Because of the sunscald, and because I heard peppers produce more if they are picked often, I went ahead and harvested them all today, so I will have mostly green peppers, which is fine. I would like to be able to have more of them red, but wanted to harvest them while they were still intact, and not let them go to waste due to the brown spots caused by the excessive heat. I am a newbie at gardening. Perhaps I will invest in a shade cloth for next year.

What are the pros? easy to grow from seeds

What are the cons? small, bitter peppers

Review:

I must have gotten a weird batch or offended the Bell Pepper Gods or something, because these were terrible for me. The plants barely grew higher than 1' tall, and the peppers themselves were quite small. The peppers were very slow to ripen, and even when red, were quite bitter and unpleasant to eat. I grew them in big rubbermaid bins, and one plant even managed to develop a gross black spotty problem in the stem and peppers.
