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.

If I could only grow one pepper, this would be it, I think. Very versatile.

What size container would be best for growing red Marconi pepper plant? I'll be starting it from seeds. The name on the packet does not say "giant".

I'm not sure there is any difference between the two. The Giant Marconis may be fatter. I grow mine in a 14" pot.
