They all sound delicious!
I tried Marconi Red last year because a friend really liked them. Now I do! They ripen to red so much better than a bell pepper.
When you do settle on a snacker, I'd be interested in what you choose, lol!
If anything it is a pretty, red pepper :o)
Oh my! Ours were over a dollar so I opted for a three pack at slightly less. I can always use them and must confess, that if not for the price, I'd love to buy red, yellow and orange peppers all the time.
This year our peppers came in really late so we didn't have many for market, which we finished up the end of July. We plant a large variety so I have reds, oranges, yellows and greens. We gave away many tubs of them but we also froze a lot. A fellow vendor at market told us about freezing peppers whole so we tried it. I wasn't sure how to go about using them but the other night I made a chicken fajita bake and took one bag of peppers out to use. After letting them sit about five minutes I cut off the tops then made one slice in the pepper and they opened up easily for me to remove the seeds. Then I sliced them in wide strips and baked them with the chicken, garlic and onions. It was delicious! At least now I think I may really use up all those peppers.
I used to freeze cut up peppers all the time to use on pizzas. I got tired of them frosting over every time I opened the container. Plus, the skin seemed tough so eventually I quit.
I think this year I'll just freeze some of the Marconi's. I do miss having them.
I agree. I grew up on California Wonder and never even considered a different kind till a former DG friend said she really liked the Marconi. Niw I do too. They still have a skin, but made great stuffed green peppers for the freezer. I'll still do a green pepper in the garden but I'm off to try new things!
