An American favorite for many generations! Golden version of the red California Wonder. 22-26"H sturdy, upright plants. Smooth, blocky and blunt ended 5"x4" fruits are thick-walled, very sweet and mild. Maturing from light green to golden yellow. Continuous set. Ideal for stuffing, slicing into rings for dips and salad toppings, and chopping into crisp bite-sized nibbles.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
