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.

What are the pros? Great Tasts, Sweet, Must Have

What are the cons? None

Review:

I was extremely excited about growing the Jimmy Nardello Pepper this year. It did not disappoint. I started my seeds in late January, and before June I got to taste this amazing pepper. To be honest I did keep the plant small and let it flower early just so that I could taste them, because I had never tried them. When ripe, the pepper becomes a beautiful bright red, and it has a very sweet, juicy, slightly citrusy flavor. Very happy with these, I will plant them every year. They are great to snack on raw, and I can't wait to cook with them. Fermented they would be amazing to snack on as well.

What are the pros? Stood up to heat, easy to grow

What are the cons? Watch out for flea beetles!

Review:

Got these seeds as a free gift from a company. Decided to grow them in five gallon buckets. They did outstanding in 2018, despite hot, relentless humid weather. Very easy to grow besides. These were the first to fruit out of all my peppers (I grew 6 different varieties) and produced the most peppers per plant of all my peppers. I think I got somewhere between 30 and 40 peppers off of one plant. Wonderful tasting, no heat, we often fried them with onions and whatever meat, or cut them up and froze them for use like bell peppers. Everyone who tried them were surprised at how good they were, so I think I'll be growing these again soon! And I know its not the plant's fault, but watch out for flea beetles on these guys!

What are the pros? Dependable bloomer.

What are the cons? none

Review:

Friariello is by far the most dependable pepper in my walipini. I have them in 10 gallon containers and they are and easy 5 feet tall from there. The peppers are mild and tasty. Not overly fleshy. What I like about this variety the most is it's dependable bloom. As the first of the year comes and goes many of my peppers slow way down on blooms. The Friariello has not. It has kept a steady bloom and fruit production all winter. It has been a healthy and mostly pest resistant plant. My second favorite plant in the walipini. Of coarse my Black Opal cherry tomato is my true love.

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.

Overall amazing pepper. The only thing is that plant stay too short, and since pepper is about 10-12 " long, They Hang in the grown and some get rotted.
