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.

    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.
