Marconi Italian Red Peppers are a prolific heirloom that is considered to be the sweetest type of its kind compared to the Marconi Golden and purple varieties. This is a great choice for your garden, bringing a nice pop of red to the rest of your foliage.

The compact pepper plants reach 2.5 ft. tall and produce incredibly long pods. We're not joking - these pods can stretch to as long as 12" and spread 3" across the shoulders, making it one of the largest Italian-type sweet peppers out there! Marconi Italian Red peppers ripen from green to red, with their flavor sweetening as they mature. The shape is similar to a NuMex Big Jim, tapering off to a rounded point.

With its great adaptability and smoky-sweet flavor, the giant Marconi pepper is a great choice to grow and use in the kitchen. These peppers provide the perfect amount of crunchiness and sweetness that make them perfect for cooking red sauce, pasta, salads, and many cooked dishes.
