Awarded All-America Selections recognition in 2001 for its adaptability, earliness, smoky-sweet flavor, and yield, this pepper is a sure winner in the garden. It is one of the biggest Italian- type sweet peppers, with a long profile and a slightly lobed end. Peppers ripen from green to red and are sweetest when red. They are great in all kinds of cooked dishes, especially grilled or roasted for sandwiches or alone. Plants grow about 2.5 feet tall and are resistant to tobacco mosaic virus and potato Y virus. Keep peppers picked and they will continue producing until frost.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available in your local area, due to different variables in certain regions. Also, if any variety is a limited, regional variety it will be noted on the pertinent variety page.

Giant Marconi Pepper is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down the best tasting bell-type sweet pepper I've ever grown. Hardy, productive, and absolutely delicious! Think of Marconi peppers as a premium substitute for other bell peppers in pasta, stuffed with your filling of choice, or fresh in salads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't find any locally: I was given a couple of plants by a friend from GA last year. They were wonderful. But, I can't find anyone in the Jacksonville or Palatka area that carries them in 9 packs. The larger pots are just too expensive for folks on fixed incomes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all around meaty pepper!: I can't say enough about this pepper. The Bonnie plants are robust and produce better than if I had started the seeds myself. Only downside is, being able to find the plants available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I had a choice between a Bell Pepper and a Giant Marconi, the Marconi would always win: I have being growind these peppers for the past 6 years - start with a good sand/loam soil mix, add nitrogen early and after blossums appear, remove unnessary leaves when plant is maturing, keep soil lightly moist AND watch the plant produce! I trellis my plants because they sometimes reach 40 to 48 inches high

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet pepper best when deep red : Very prolific sweet pepper that produced well until first frost, even better in fall after day temp fell below 90 here in Houston. The height description is very misleading as both my Marconi plants were 6'-7' tall, about 3' above the tomato cage below . My only pest problem was squirrels.
