‘Yolo Wonder’ produces large, 4 1/2 by 4 inch, three to four-lobed, glossy peppers on large, sturdy plants. Large leaves provide excellent coverage to the developing bell pepper, preventing sun-scald. This variety is an improved ‘California Wonder’, with resistance to Tobacco Mosaic Virus. ‘Yolo Wonder’ turns from green to red, adding sweetness along the way.
