Giant Marconi Hybrid #9037 (20 seeds)
ALL AMERICA SELECTIONS WINNER. Awarded for its earliness, yield, size, and flavor, this is one of the biggest Italian-type, sweet peppers that you'll find anywhere. Peppers turn from green to red, and at 8 inches long with a lobed tip, they resemble a cross between a Marconi and a Lamuyo-type pepper. They are sweetest when red and are good for salads, but really are outstanding when grilled and roasted, methods that bring out the best of their great flavor. 30-inch tall plants bear heavily despite cold, wet, or dry conditions, and are resistant to potato virus and tobacco mosaic virus. 63 days.
