With its adaptability and smoky-sweet flavor, this giant Marconi pepper is a great choice and will bring a great pop of red in your garden!  The Red Marconi Pepper is a prolific Italian, tapered-shaped heirloom that provides crunchiness, sweetness, and versatility.  Growing up to 12 inches long and 3 inches across the shoulders, it is one of the biggest Italian-type sweet peppers and is perfect for cooking red sauce, pasta dish, salads, and many cooked dishes.  The plant grows to 2.5 feet tall, almost like the Golden and Purple Maroni Peppers.  The giant Marconi sweet pepper ripens from green to red and it is the sweetest when red.  Just don’t get it mixed up with the NuMex Big Jim! 

Fun FactThe Marconi Pepper comes in three beautiful colors.  The red is the sweetest pepper out of them all, with the purple pepper having a deeper pepper flavor.  The golden pepper provides a gentle sweetness.

Great seed

All the seeds germinated quickly, just waiting for fruit!

Red Marconi Italian Pepper Seeds

Excellent germination 99/100. Red Marconi are a large-fruited sweet pepper with an excellent flavor, far superior to bell peppers. (Note that these are not spicy!) Once you try these, you'll never go back to bell peppers again!

Always dependable

Love your products. I will say though I did not get one Carolina Reaper this year. The plant looked beautiful just no blooms. Still have a few seeds for next spring. Over all, the rest of the plants were great.(all your seeds). Can't wait to till Feb to start my seeds.

The hookup

No matter what i spend 20 or 80 bucks they always hook it up with some free seeds ! Those stickers you sent inspired a tattoo in the near future !! Pepper Joe's is the real deal! Thanks guys!

That is fun! We would love to see it!

Low germination rate.
It’s probably operator error.
I think you should give some more specific instructions for sprouting each type based on y’all’s experience.
Maybe you sent it with the seeds and I didn’t read it
