CAPSICUM – CAL WONDER

Capsicum annuum

A sweet lovely capsicum that gives a harvest of large fruit of uniform shape, weight approximately 200-300g. As it matures the green fruit changes to bright red. Tasty, crunchy flesh is ideal in salads, good for stuffing. In Yolo Wonder, the fruit contains more vitamin C than oranges. The bushes themselves are compact & well-suited for growing in containers at home, as well as for open ground & greenhouses. Good resistance to disease & calcium deficiency. Named after Yolo County California.

Use liquid fertilizer once germinated & transplant when all danger of frost has passed & the soil is warm. Space plants 40-60 cm apart in full sun, in rich soil & stake. Plants generally, reach about 60cm in height. Keep well fertilized & watered. Avoid high nitrogen fertilizers as these will promote leaf growth at the expense of fruit. Pick early fruit to encourage more fruiting. In fruit fly areas, the fruit should be protected by bagging.
