AAS Vegetable Award Winner

'Giant Marconi' is an improved Italian grilling pepper.  About 6 to 8 inches long, the tapered green pepper will mature to red on the 30 inch plant.  'Giant Marconi' tastes excellent raw but is best when grilled.  It has a memorable sweet, smoky flavor.  'Giant Marconi' was judged best in its class for earliness, yield, pepper size and flavor.  Plants are resistant to Potato Virus Y and Tobacco Mosaic Virus, which means the plants tend to live longer for an improved yield.  Green peppers can be harvested in about 72 days from transplanting.
