Pepper 'Marconi Rosso' (organic) is a so called red-horn pepper. It is large, sweet and prolific and for all these reasons one of the very few red peppers I grow. For most, the balance between the TLC required and the amount they produce is not in the pepper's favour, but that's not so with this productive and tasty kind.
