I transplanted my 8" California Wonder seedlings into holes with added bone meal, manure, and epsom salt. I mulched the plants with straw. At first, they wilted in the 90-degree Florida heat. But they soon adapted, and grew from 1 to 2 1/2 feet in height. Most of the plants are producing between one and four peppers each, and there are a still several months in the growing season. The peppers are growing to about store size. I really like this heirloom and will definitely save seed for next year.

These peppers grew on short plants, I was surprised to see such large fruit on such short, stocky plants. Flesh was very thick, and great for picking while green. Ants attacked ripe red peppers for some reason. I would recommend pulling the ones you're going to let ripen a little early, as they develop soft spots that the ants chew through. A nice pepper overall. Although there are better varieties of ripe red peppers than the California Wonder.

We've grown this pepper three years in a row in zone 7 North Carolina. For whatever reason, we have having a BUMPER pepper crop this year with each plants putting out more than 5 peppers at a time. The peppers are larger this year than they've been in the past as well. Heirloom peppers aren't going to get as big as hybrids that are bred for size, but the peppers this year are rivaling large supermarket peppers. We recommend this variety for taste, but yields can vary from year to year.
