I bought my plant as Golden California Wonder. The peppers set and turn from green to yellow to a color approaching orange. Very nice, sweet, mild taste. The fruits are supposed to be stuffing size, but mine are much too small for that use, so I think they're better just eaten fresh or cut up for stir fry.

This was the best performing bell pepper in my 2018 garden. It really stood out in a year of weak harvest for my bells. It had the most peppers, and they were by far the largest, thick-walled peppers out of about 4 different varieties. They were sweet and a gorgeous yellow to deep gold color. They kept well for quite a while. I will look for these again.
