This fine Italian pepper was grown each year by Giuseppe and Angella Nardiello, at their garden in the village of Ruoti, in Southern Italy. In 1887 they set sail with their one-year-old daughter Anna for a new life in the USA. When they reached these shores, they settled and gardened in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and grew this same pepper that was named for their fourth son Jimmy. This long, thin-skinned frying pepper dries easily and has such a rich flavor that this variety has been placed in "The Ark of Taste" by the Slow Food organization. Ripens a deep red, is very prolific, and does well in most areas.

What are the pros? Very easy pepper to grow

Review:

This plant is our "Goto" pepper each year. Very easy to grow and each plant produced 50 peppers. We have moved them indoors for the winter and their still producing peppers. Our kids pick them right off the plant and actually have a hard time waiting for them to ripen. All around great plant to have in the garden.

Review:

This is my favorite sweet pepper and I will be growing it every year. It is very sweet with a rich pepper flavor when eaten fresh and it is equally delicious cooked in any way. It is also very productive and very ornamental. I have not tried it yet but I am betting it would be phenomenal dried and used as paprika powder as another poster suggested.

Review:

This is a wonderful, tasty pepper that is loaded with fruit. I read that these were grown in Jefferson's garden, and I can see why the seeds are still popular today. I picked some peppers in the green stage and others have been turning red (early-mid/August). If they all turn red it will be quite a harvest!
