The golden version of the popular California Wonder, this vigorous pepper turns golden when mature. Its bright colour is a delight to the eyes, while its sweet flavour will make you keep coming back for more.



[70 days] Popular since the 1920s, this heirloom golden California Wonder is much like its green/red sibling in shape—blocky, smooth, and blunt-ended, and in growing aspect—22-26’ upright plants that set continuously throughout the season. It’s the colour and flavour that makes this beauty a delight. While the standard California Wonder peppers turn from green to red, these turn a bright gold. Their flavour is considerably milder and sweeter, making the pepper of choice for those who don’t like the slight bitterness of traditional green peppers.

Like its sibling, this golden version of the California Wonder is resistant to the Tobacco Mosaic Virus, and will consistently produce nice large peppers throughout the growing season.

Excellent raw or cooked, stuffed or sautéed.
