Large thick sweet red peppers, Beautiful plants

I tried Marconi Red Pepper seeds last year (2019) & we loved the taste of this pepper. Even when it’s green, it taste 100% better than any sweet red pepper from a store. The seeds germinated well & the plants are hardy. I purchased the seeds for 2020 & the plants are growing well. I also used some of the 2019 seeds & those are doing great. We didn’t get a huge amount of peppers from each plant, but the thickness/taste out does a different large seed supplier’s banana peppers. Six weeks later, the plants are approximately 7 inches tall. One leaf I measured is 4” long by 3” wide. They still have about 2 weeks before going into the garden. I highly recommend these.
