Pepper - Marconi Red - Capsicum annuum

Tender Annual This sweet red pepper from Italy has somewhat elongated fruit up to 12" long and 3" across at the shoulders. Ideal for frying and tasty green as well as red. An early variety known for its high yields.

Soil & Water: Peppers require deeply-worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct seeding is not recommended. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. These peppers may be harvested from the green stage through the color changes.
