Introduced in 1952 by the Campbell Soup Company, 'Yolo Wonder' is an open-pollinated improvement on the 'California Wonder' heirloom. 'Yolo Wonder' gives big, consistent-shaped fruit and is resistant to tobacco mosaic virus. Good leaf coverage prevents sun scald. This variety turns from green to red, adding sweetness along the way.

First year growing so I don't know if this variety really is this good or if I just had a great year. They are large with super thick walls. Mine have taken a long time to fully turn red, but that may be normal. A few have fallen off, rotted, or had pests, but all in all a very productive plant. I grew four plants and have harvested at least 8lbs of peppers of varying ripeness (with many more still on the plant).
