The Golden Marconi is one of the sweetest Heirloom peppers there are! The Golden Marconi is a native of Italy. All are Heirloom, Non-GMO, and open-pollinated. They ripen to a golden color and grow six to eight inches, pretty fast, around 70 days from transplant. That is fast for a colored pepper of this size. The Golden Marconi is a native of Italy and is a very rare variety. This variety will do well in the north. What a great garden seed--order yours today. Happy growing!!!
