Plant Information
Although modern-day slang would assign a fun meaning to this sweet pepper's name, it's unclear why the heirloom "Yolo" is actually named so. The "Wonder" part makes perfect sense, as this is indeed an impressive pepper that shows off gorgeous, lush green foliage while producing amazingly delicious veggies. It was introduced by the Campbell Soup Company in 1952, and since then has become very popular thanks to its awesome shape and sweet taste. Yolo Wonder sweet pepper plants are very heavy yielders, treating you to quite a harvest of succulent peppers 4-5 inches in diameter. Thick, crisp, and refreshing with tender and tasty flesh, these peppers will grow green at first and then ripen to a rich red. They're perfect in every recipe, raw or cooked, and an ideal stuffed pepper choice, and they only get sweeter as they mature so try them at various stages for a variety of flavors.
