Long Red Marconi has pointy fruits, which ripen from green to red. Can be picked at the green stage. Mild sweet flavour.
Sow sweet pepper seeds about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells. Cover lightly, water and place inside at between 20-25 Celsius. To aid germination, place the tray in a plastic bag. Sow January-March.
Germination can be slow with peppers. As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out.Transplant the seedlings into small individual pots. Use rich compost and keep the plants between 20-30 Celsius during the growing season. For best production keep the plants in the greenhouse. Regular feeding is recommended.
