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, this pepper is a sure winner in the garden and the kitchen.
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 Giant has a long body with a slight lobed end, but no one can forget about their flavors. It has sweet flavors and a hint of smokiness and the Giant Marconi peppers are great in all kinds of cooked dishes. We recommend grilling or roasting them because their flavors will enhance. Ripening from green to a bold red, the Marconi Giant pepper plant will keep producing peppers until frost if you continue to keep harvesting them. Try eating them raw, grilled, roasted, fried, or in salads and salsas.
The plants grow to 2.5 feet tall and are resistant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus and Potato Y virus. This means the plants will be able to live longer for an improved yield. That’s music to our ears!
