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.

Review:

Originally I tasted these from a small farmers market. I then bought seed and I have grown them for the four years since. Fried, pickled, fermented, or fresh. Great flavor and texture. I use it in and on everything. Customer favorite is right, grow these peppers, you'll love them. When I make hot pepper jam, I add lots of Jimmy's for flavor. I've had one in thirty or more produce some heat. Plants could use support as the fruit can weigh heavy on some plants.

What are the pros? EXCELLENT flavor

What are the cons? Long name is hard to say

Review:

The ONLY issue I have with this awesome pepper is the length of the name. But with the back story, the pepper has made a wonderful conversation opener at my greenhouse.

This seed was very easy to germinate, quickly established a strong center stalk. Wonderful color and flavor. Unexpectedly sweet yet similar in look to a cayenne.
