Also known as the Golden California Wonder pepper, Golden Cal Wonder pepper, or Golden Wonder pepper, California Wonder peppers are known to be America’s favorite sweet bell pepper since the 1920s. The California Wonder Golden pepper is an exceedingly sweet pepper with almost all the same characteristics as the California Wonder, except for its color.

As it hints in its name, this 4-5” long pepper is a beautiful bright golden color, changing to orange-red when fully ripen. The Golden Wonder pepper plant grows to 2-3 feet tall that will become an upright, sturdy plant. They love the sun, so make sure you’re planting the pepper in a sunny area! The plant will produce high yields of gorgeous golden pepper and you’ll never run out of these delicious peppers.

It’s a blocky-shaped, 4-lobed bell pepper with thick and hearty flesh that is popular to use for cooking, which is why so many people love to cook with these peppers! You can use this flavorful Golden Cal Wonder pepper for salsas, salads, stuffing, stir-frying, cooking, and roasting. Whatever cooking you do – you cannot go wrong with the California Wonder Golden.

So far so good

I had 5 germinated seeds out of the 6 I planted. All look good. But the taste will be what matters and that I won’t know for quite awhile

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
