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.
