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.
