If you are looking for a little pop of purple in your garden, then you are in luck! The Marconi Purple Pepper is the rarest of the Marconi Peppers with the other colors being red and golden, and a great addition to your garden. It is a sweet and delicious Italian pepper with a tapered shape and blunt tip, growing to six inches long and the plant growing up to three feet tall. With its sweet bell flavor and crunchy texture, it is perfect for salads but can also be used for stir frying, roasting, and stuffing. They mature from green to dark purple, and sweetness begins at the ripened purple stage.
