Make sure the soil is around 80-85 degrees for proper germination. Pepper plants will need a grow light for 12-16 hours each day. Harden off seedlings before transplanting by exposing them to the current weather conditions for several hours each day before planting in the ground. Transplant the pepper seedlings once the outside temperature reaches 60-65 degrees F in the daytime and no lower than 50°F at night. Culinary Uses These peppers can be used the same way that you would use any Green Bell Pepper or Colored bell pepper from the grocery store. The more colorful the pepper, the sweeter the flavor generally. Harvesting Crops California Wonder peppers will change colors the longer you leave them on the plant. So, depending on your preference of colors and flavors (sweet or not), you may harvest at different times. Harvest once the green pepper is almost a mature size for green peppers or leave on longer for a sweeter pepper. It is best to harvest the peppers early, because if left to mature the plant will think that it is done producing. Use a sharp knife or pair of garden shears to pick the peppers as you will want to be careful not to damage the plant. Harvesting Seed You must be careful when growing pepper plants, as they will cross pollinate with many other varieties of pepper plants. You will need to isolate or cage (bee netting) your plants to preserve the strain you are growing. Allow the plant to fully mature. Remove the best peppers and cut them in half to expose their seeds. Spread the seeds out on a paper towel and dry for about 2 weeks. Once dried, store safely until next growing season.
