A customer favorite! 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 U.S. 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.

These peppers are delicious and easy to grow, even setting peppers in out Texas heat. I am not much on raw peppers, but this one is even good raw. I will definitely grow this one again.

Review:

Heavy producer, peppers are best when left to ripen to red on the plant. Pick lower peppers before the bottoms rot because the weight of all the peppers farther up on the plant will eventually allow the lore ones touch the ground. I’ve never had any turn up spicy if grown near how peppers.

What are the pros? Didn't get sick.

Review:

I grew one plant in a pot on my porch. I used a good potting soil, and kept it watered. Occasionally I would fertilize with "Alaska" brand fish emulsion, or "Miracle Grow" dissolved 1-2 teaspoons per gallon of water. The plant produced peppers quickly and they grew very large. I noticed something interesting: Do not fertilize with Miracle Grow as your biggest pods are half red and half green. They'll react by the red areas going a bit brown-red, and then gradually back to all red. In other words, the red areas become less vibrant. They'll still ripen and be edible, but they get sidetracked into some brown stage and the ripening to a nice red is delayed. They never got sick. We have lots of humidity here but it didn't seem to affect them. They liked the sun.

Review:

strong and prolific plant, pops out tons of peppers and all are long and colorful, ripen up quickly too. great sweet flavor and soft skin. great for pickling - just made a bunch with a few jalapenos and it has the perfect sweet/spicy flavor. i'll definitely save some seeds to grow again.

Review:

This pepper is beautifully sweet and is yielding amazing in my garden. I am increasingly impressed with the way this pepper has turned out. I love to grow peppers and this is a charm. It did take awhile to start flowering, however I am taking full responsibility as I started my plant indoors early fall and did not transplant outside until June. Now that it has fresh air and pollinators and breeze, it’s thriving.
