Description

Organic Pepper: Long Red Marconi. Capsicum annuum.

This variety is best grown under cover. It’s a long red sweet pepper with a mild flavour. Can be eaten green or they’re sweeter when ripe.

How to grow:
Sow seeds in modules from February on, on heat 18-21C, preferably in a propagator with a lid. Once the first true leaves appear you can pot up into 8cm pots, keep on open heat if you have it and plant out into the greenhouse/polytunnel once it’s warmed up. They like a soil temperature of 21 to 29C. Water and liquid feed as necessary from below.

Problem solving:
Aphids can be controlled inside by bringing in ladybirds when you notice a few. Red spider mites like it dry so keep the moisture levels up.

Favourite ways to eat them:
Great raw in salads or cooked in many dishes or hollowed out and stuffed with risotto and baked in the oven.

Cultural history:
Originally from south America where they have been grown for 1,000s of years. Imported into Spain in 1493 they have been embraced in Europe and the world over.

Avg contents:   30 seeds.
