Giant Marconi Sweet PeppersGiant Marconi Sweet Peppers
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.

Found my yields to be a bit lacking with this variety, but the peppers I did get from them were very good. Thick walls. Nice crisp flavor. Also worked very well in my stir-fry's and as an ingredient in my chili.
