My Marconis are Hot
by Karen Blumhagen
I am pleased with how well these peppers grew in my pepper challenged environment. But you have them listed as sweet, but when I tried them they are hot. My lip is still burning as I write.
HARD OVERALL TO germinate... grow,,... as seedling
I ordered these they are hard to germinate and more cool weather peppers I live in zone9b and all mine have disease.. and don't germinate very vell about 30 days and then have disease. IDK maybe its the type but I love marconis as a sweet pepper but these I struggle with.
Great results for this beginner gardener!
by Newbie Homesteader
Prolific and healthy. Easy to germinate and transplant to garden even for this first time gardener. We are growing 100% organically and have had no problems.
Love the Marconi Peppers
I ordered these last year, and will again for this (2022) year. We loved them! Germinated well, easy to grow. Big and beautiful!
Hot or sweet???
I loved these peppers but some of the plants have produced hot peppers the last two years I have grown them. And I mean, almighty Holy Ghost hot!
