The traditional favorite in Italy. Long 8-inch tapered, bull-horn shaped golden-yellow peppers are sweet and spicy. They are great fresh or roasted. Large plants yield well. Among the best peppers you can grow and so delicious. Pure Italian seed.

What are the pros? Delicious!

What are the cons? slow to germinate, sunscald

Review:

This is my second year growing these and I don't recall them being this tricky to get going last year, but looking at how many seeds I planted versus how many plants made it to the garden, they must have been just as finicky. Of everything I grew this year, including baccatum and chinense, these were the last up with just 2 of 6 seeds sprouting after 14 days. Given that I had 6-7 year old seed in that same flat with 100% germination, I feel safe saying it wasn't me, but the seed is just not as hardy and needs a bit more tlc. But hear me out, the flavor on these is worth triple sowing! Out of everything I grew last year, not only were these guys incredibly prolific, but the flavor was rich and knocked everything else I grew out of the park roasted. They were also a bit prone to sunscald compared to some of the other I grew in the same area, but again, the flavor makes them worth the effort in my opinion.

What are the pros? Superb flavor and performance.

What are the cons? Needs support, too prolific!

Review:

Great pepper I'm just getting around to eating the bulk of the roasted frozen stuff from last year and these really stand out compared to the other Corno-types I grew. Very prolific plants once they got going, so much so they broke a few branches before I got them some support.

What are the pros? Flavor, germination, beauty

What are the cons? Huge peppers can damage plant

Review:

I've grown this pepper throughout the Carolinas for the last 7 years and it is by far my favorite pepper. The flavor is amazing and so sweet I eat most of them while in the garden like an apple. They are great roasted as well. The only negative is that the fruits can grow so large the plant needs to be trellised.

One of the Best Sweet Peppers

What are the pros? Sweet, great flavor

What are the cons? Ripening tales patience

Review:

I fell in love with Jimmy Nardellos in 2015 & went from having only 1 plant, to having 8 this year. So I was very surprised when this became my favorite sweet pepper this year. I had 3 plants, & all of them produced quite well over a long season with 2-3 flushes each. I found the hardest part was waiting for them to ripen most of the way, then I would harvest (to safeguard them) & leave on the kitchen counter for 2-3 days to finish turning yellow or orange. I enjoyed them most cut into strips and then 1 inch pieces, placed skin-side down on air-bake cookie sheets, & baked in 170 oven for about an hour, or until they started to shrivel some & dry out a bit. This seemed to keep the skins from becoming too tough, but caused the flavor & sweetness to intensify into something incredible. I would scoop up a handful to eat before they were cooled, & then before I knew it all were gone! I never loved sweet peppers before last year. I intend to grow many more of these plants in 2017!

Review:

Purchased one packett of these for the first time for Summer 2015 planting and they did great. :-) but I forgot to save some seeds for this year. :-( This year (2016) I ordered the Giallo and Rosso to start them in the house as usual along with the rest of my peppers. Unfortunatly, there was very poor germination with all of the Toros from Baker Creek this year. :-( I ended up finding some mixed Toro seeds at a local garden center and they seem to be doing fine. :-\ It seems that something happened to Baker Creek's toros this year. All other seeds that I've ordered from them are doing just fine.
