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.

My first go at growing these Beauties! Can't wait until they turn Red and Sweet! Planted about a month ago from Starter Plants from "Big Box"! store. Going to try my hand at seeding them to start from scratch in the coming years.

Nice looking peppers, Bill. I can't find the seeds I saved but I bought another plant last week and I'll collect more this year as well.

I am originally from East Tennessee (Johnson City)...been in Orlando since 82. Just started on this post a week or so ago. Lot of fun and WONDERFUL people and help! I notice you have quite a lot of plant seeds for Trade. I plan to do that as well. Especially, once my Sago's start producing again. I collect the pups all the time....they are easier to grow than the seeds which come every other year but, getting to them is hard work.
Cheers! (And, good luck with your Marconi's)
