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 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? Yummy, easy, prolific, perfect

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've been growing these for 5 years. I routinely get 10 inch peppers. I use them in anything, from fresh munching off the plant, salads, sandwiches, slaw, stir fry, omelettes, sauces or salsa. They do best in smaller tomato cages as they will sag from fruit weight.

What are the pros? Sweet, pretty, tasty

What are the cons? Some plants did not do as well

Review:

I'm so happy I tried this plant again. The season before last, the plants got diseased and hardly produced a thing, and the peppers that did make it had a bad taste. So It must have just been bad luck. The second time around, oh... my... goodness! Not one pepper made it indoors. My daughter and I snatched up every red pepper we found and devoured them! The peppers produced abundantly and quickly turned from green to red all season long. We loved the long, curvy shape! Every day seemed to have at least one ripe pepper, typically more. Early producer and produced until the first frost. Awesome plant, and will be planting it for years to come!

What are the pros? Great replacement for bells

What are the cons? None

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!

What are the pros? Easy to grow and good yield.

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.
