    Sowing and Transplanting: Transplant pepper seedlings to the garden 2-3 weeks after the last frost. Sow seed indoors 8-10 weeks before transplanting to the garden. Sow seed directly in the garden only in long-summer regions

    Start seed indoors in a warm, well-lighted location—in a bright window or under grow lights. Sow 1-2 seeds ¼” (6 mm ) deep in individual containers with seed starting mix. Keep mix just moist. Seedlings emerge in 1-21 days at 75-80°F (24-26°C). Thin seedlings to 1 plant per container once plants are 2-3” (5-7 cm) tall.

    Growing: Plant peppers  in compost-rich, well-drained soil. Pre-heat planting beds by covering with black polyethylene sheeting 1 week before transplanting. Move seedlings to a sheltered place outside to “harden off” 1 week before transplanting. Space plants in garden 18” (45 cm) apart; rows should be 24” (61 cm) apart. Keep the soil just moist throughout the growing season–watering deeply as the season progresses.

    Harvesting: Peppers can be harvested green–even red, orange, and yellow varieties. For full flavor allow fruits to ripen to maturity and full color. Note days to maturity on your calendar when you set out transplants.

    Sweet Pepper ‘Marconi Red’ is an Italian bred variety. They produce much sweeter and tastier fruits. 

    Incredibly sweet and beautiful, these long, slim sweet peppers are the gourmet's choice. 
    They have a wonderful taste and feature sweet skin, medium thick flesh and a mild and juicy flavour. 
    This variety is often used for roasting and frying but also tastes wonderful when eaten fresh.
