Have you “wondered” to find tasty, brilliant peppers that are vigorous and thrive well in dry, hot climates? You came to the right place because the Yolo Wonder is a truly exceptional pepper! It is an improved strain of the California Wonder, as it is a larger variety and is more resistant to Tobacco Mosaic virus. This was also designed for New Mexico for its dry, hot climate, so for those who live in warmer climates, the Yolo Wonder pepper plant will fight well against hot conditions!
You’ll never run out of peppers as the plant is a heavy yielder that’ll produce plenty of large, thick-skinned sweet bell peppers. The Yolo wonder pepper has 3-4 lobes and grows to around 4 inches on plants that grow to 24 to 28 inches tall. Ripening from green to red, these peppers have mild flavors with thick skins that hold up really well for baking or stuffing and are delicious eaten raw, on salads, or as a topping. You’ll be satisfied growing the Yolo Wonder because it is easy to grow and performs well in your garden, patio, or in a container!
