Yolo Wonder is a sweet bell pepper with mild flavor and crisp juicy flesh. It's large with thick skin and will turn from dark green to bright red when mature. Easy to grow and a good choice for new gardeners.

Pepper seeds can be started indoors.

Start seeds inside 8 weeks before the last frost date. Plant seeds 1/2" deep in pots with growing mix and place on a warm seedling mat or in a warm area that is 70 to 85 degrees with bright light. Peppers are similar to tomatoes and require relatively warm temperatures to germinate and grow quickly. Fertilize every 2 weeks. After 8 weeks, when the outdoor garden soil has warmed, harden off the seedlings and plant them 16" apart in full sun.

Yolo Wonder produces large 4-5" peppers that grow from the branches and hang down. The 2' tall plant may require staking or a cage for support. It's best to put the support in place when the plants are first transplanted so the roots will not be damaged later.

When watering soak the soil to a depth of at least 6" so the soil stays moist but never soggy. Mulching can help to provide uniform moisture, conserve water, and reduce weeds.

Harvest peppers when they are very firm and green or wait until they are fully mature and red in color. 

Each packet contains 30 Yolo Wonder Bell Pepper seeds. Capsicum annuum. Annual. Open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO. Harvest in 75 days. $3.00

This packet plants a 40' row with 30 plants.

Peppers are delicious.

Bell peppers are very versatile and can be added raw to everything from dips and salads to pasta dishes. Roasting peppers is easy, too. Cut a small slit near the stems. Grill or broil until blackened. Then let them steam in a plastic bag for about 15 minutes before scraping off the skin and removing the stem, core, and seeds. Stuffing, stir-frying, and sauteeing are all popular ways to prepare them.

Features.

Its mildly sweet flavor is perfect for stuffing or fresh eating. The peppers are a hardy warm-season crop that grows in full sun and prefers rich well-draining soil. The name Yolo is from Yolo County in northern California where this pepper originated. 

Benefits.

Bell peppers are low in calories and loaded with good nutrition. The red version of Yolo Wonder bell pepper packs the most nutrition because it has been on the vine the longest. Compared to green bell peppers, the red ones have almost 11 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more vitamin C. When eaten green or red they are excellent sources of vitamins A and C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber. 


All bell peppers are rich in many vitamins and antioxidants, especially vitamin C and various carotenoids. They have several health benefits including improved eye health and reduced risk of several chronic diseases.

More Information about planting, growing, and harvesting bell peppers can be found in the Farmer's Almanac Growing Guide.

Cannot yet review, too early in the season

A little bit early to review your seeds is it not? They all germinated but the harvest isn't for a few months yet.
