Mama Mia Giallo Peppers are large, Italian roasting peppers that mature to a bright golden color. “Giallo” is Italian for yellow, and these peppers mature to a beautifully rich, yellow color. An All-America Selection (AAS*) in 2014, the large fruits are 7-9″ long at full maturity. Mama Mia Giallo Pepper produces meaty peppers with thick walls and a juicy, almost citrusy flavor. This is a heavy-yielding variety with each plant producing over 25 large fruits. Plants are compact and average about 2′ tall, making this a great variety for containers and raised bed gardens.
Plants should be started indoors 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright.
*AAS – All-America Selections is an independent non-profit organization that tests new, never-before-sold varieties for the home gardener. After a full season of anonymous trialing by volunteer horticulture professionals, only the top garden performers are given the AAS Winner award designation for their superior performance.
