MARCONI RED PEPPER (80-90 DAYS)

2

Germ 10-14 days
Long tapered Italian peppers with thin walls, a crunchy texture and come in three beautiful colors. Red is the sweetest with the beautiful shaded purple having a more deep pepper flavor and the golden offers a gentle sweetness. Plants flourish with fruits that are great for frying, stuffing or sliced into rings for salads. 20 seeds.

 

PLANTING:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Great Italian Pepper

I grew this pepper in a large container last year. It was prolific, sweet and wonderful. I picked the last perfect pepper in September.

MARCONI RED PEPPER

I have been growing MARCONI RED PEPPER's since the 1980's. They are an Italian sweet pepper variety. They are a large bull horn shaped pepper. I like to hollow out the seeds and stuff them with sausage, meat, rice and tomato sauce and bake them. The downside to these peppers is that they produce only a small limited quantity of peppers. The quality is great, the hardiness is temperamental and they are the largest pepper plant I grow in my garden which is undesirable. I am growing them again this year and I recommend them.
