Mama Mia Rosso Pepper is a hybrid, red Italian roasting pepper. "Rosso" is Italian for red, and this marconi-type pepper produces large, 7-9" fruits on compact plants. Fruits are initially green and mature to a bright red color that adds a nice citrusy hint to the peppers. Mama Mia Rosso Pepper produces compact, 24" tall plants that are great for containers or gardens of any size. An AAS winner for productivity and taste, this variety produces fruits with a sweet flavor and thick walls to give it a crisp texture. Great for roasting and grilling.

Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting peppers, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

Two years and I ran out of these seeds

These packets looked so good so I bought them and wow! They grow vigorously and very prolific! I must have got 100 peppers from one packet! They had no bug problem except for a few holes in the leaves but that’s typical. The plants grew great in the green stalks with adequate staking. The peppers were long and lean with a shiny red exterior. The ease of slicing and there is literally no waste! They freeze excellent and their taste is sweet and mild. I need to buy more of these because I will not be without!

This is my second year to grow this pepper. Very productive, great flavor, like a red bell but slightly sweeter. I prefer the Mama Mia Rosso over a red bell.
