Capsicum 'Golden Marconi'
An Italian heirloom capsicum, commonly referred to as a golden sweet pepper. Ripening from green to yellow when ripe and ready to harvest, sweetness improves with colour and cooking! Fruits can reach up to 20cm long. A lovely addition to your summer garden, and a versatile ingredient in the kitchen.
The capsicum family have a greater demand for heat than tomatoes, so in cooler areas start your capsicums indoors so that they can be planted outside as advanced seedlings after the risk of frost has passed. Choose a warm, sunny spot and cultivate it deeply adding dolomite to supply the capsicums need for calcium and magnesium. Regular harvesting improves the productivity and vigour of the plant. Pick the fruit using secateurs to avoid damaging the plant and wear gloves when harvesting chillies!
