Jimmy Nardello Italian Pepper

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? Great replacement for bells

Review:

Definitely NOT sweet! But also not hot. We were disappointed, but then remembered that it was called a frying pepper. Cooked it with Italian sausage and onions for a sandwich. Now we will never eat sausage without it ever again. We will be growing these forever and using them in any dish with saut?ed peppers in place of bell peppers. Tastes better than the bells without the indigestion. These over wintered in the house (zone7) which gave them a head start this summer. Sizes of the peppers are variable. Most are wider than an inch and six inches long and most are not curled.

Review:

I just harvested my peppers I have in a small 6 x 8 foot greenhouse..I live in a cool nights climate..in the 40's and 50's.. The night mountain air is hard on the peppers. But with the greenhouse I am able to harvest over and over.. WHAT a great collection of peppers from your seed selections.. I have the Jimmy Nardello pepper along with several other varieties and the Jimmy Nardello out produced the others by far.. BUT the others are great also..I have made several harvest pickings of the 6 pepper plants. I always fill my big garden basket for hauling into the house ..and enjoying fresh as well as freezing I already have 4 gallon freezer bags packed full of peppers.. WHAT a huge harvest for the few plants I have. I will be sure to grow these every year.. Thanks!

Review:

Omg! This pepper has it all. Every pepper I planted grew and all of my plants have lots of peppers, but most importantly of all these peppers taste great. They have a sweet apple like flavor with no bitterness whatsoever! The only thing I can complain about is that I can't wait until I get more ripe fruit! Also where I live it gets very hot but so far these peppers are doing great.

Review:

Last year (2016), I planted a bunch of seeds for Jimmy Nardello sweet peppers. Germination was 100%, so it ended up that were some excess plants to share. My mother accepted 2 of the plants. Mom has now passed, but in going through her things...I found that she saved seeds from the Jimmy Nardello peppers. The notes she included with the seeds said that the plants were productive and the peppers were flavorful -- adding a nice flavor profile to her spaghetti sauce. My review echoes that of my mother. The plants performed well in Olympia, WA. They were productive and the peppers tasted good in salads, stir-fry, and spaghetti sauce.

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.
