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.

Review:

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.

Talked to many people in my area who have grown these with ease. I must have goofed, plants are healthy, but tiny,considering 60 days growth. Try again next year.

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

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!
