Sweet Pepper 'Italian Marconi Golden'

“Many believe the flavor of Marconi Italian sweet peppers to be far superior to traditional bell peppers. Very sweet.” I put two seeds in each peat pot in case one didn’t germinate. If both do, I’m hoping I’ll be able to disentangle the roots to plant them out. In the black styrofoam tray.

This planting is in the The Waiting Room garden .

Well I hope they’re right! I’m trying these for the first time this year. Have you grown them before?

Not that I know of (I did try some mini sweet peppers from the store last season but the variety wasn’t named). I was actually looking for pepperoncini seeds. They didn’t have any but I noticed these because of the shape. Yellow, red and orange bell peppers are more expensive so I thought I’d try these.

I LOVE pepperoncini, and I’ve got loads of seeds! They just arrived yesterday … I haven’t even added them to my stash yet. They sent me something like 160 seeds … who on earth needs 160 seeds? If you want some, PM me your address and I’ll mail some to you :)

Fantastic. I was trying to see if I could trade with someone. I’m out of touch with which seeds I have because (a) I moved my potting shed outside and the rain probably ruined some and (b) things have been moved around by others in my garage/house so I no longer know where certain things are.
