Description:

You will not be disappointed growing the Marconi Giant pepper because it’s an incredible versatile pepper that was awarded the All-American Selections recognition in 2001 for its adaptability, earliness, yield, and impressive flavors! To give you a short summary, the Marconi pepper is a sure winner in the garden and the kitchen.

This compact pepper plant grows up to 2-1/2 ft. tall and is resistant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) and Potato Y virus. This means the plants will be able to live longer for an improved yield. In fact, these plants will keep producing peppers until frost if you continue to keep harvesting them. As an improved Italian variety, it’s one of the biggest Italian-type sweet peppers (as it hints in the name) and grows to 8 inches long. The Marconi pepper has a long body with a slight lobed end, ripening from green to a bold red.

One cannot forget about the flavors! It tastes sweet with a hint of smokiness and the Giant Marconi pepper is great in all kinds of cooked dishes. We recommend grilling or roasting them because their flavors will enhance. Try eating them raw, grilled, roasted, fried, or in salads and salsas.

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
