Giant Marconi Sweet Peppers

By SongofJoy
March 4, 2014

My new favorite sweet pepper to grow at home is the hybrid Italian variety, 'Giant Marconi' (Capsicum annuum 'Giant Marconi'). It's one of the largest of the Italian sweet peppers and has an oblong profile with a slightly lobed stem end. The fruits reach 6-8 inches or more in length.

Is the Golden Marconi a different version of this pepper?

I have never grown that one but I believe it is. While the 'Giant Marconi' goes from green to yellow to red, the 'Golden Marconi' remains yellow.

My Giant Marconi's go directly from Green to Red. In about 30 days. (Here in Florida)
