About Jimmy Nardello Sweet Pepper Seeds
Capsicum annuum. (80-90 days)
The Jimmy Nardello pepper originated in the small Southern Italian coastal town of Ruoti. It is here over a 100 years ago Giuseppe Nardiello and wife Angela grew this sweet frying pepper.
Now Giuseppe and Angela like many folks had heard of the new opportunity in a place called America. So, in 1887 they set sail from Naples landing in Naugatuck, Connecticut. Of course they took their prized seeds with them to settle in their new home garden. The story goes the couple had 11 children, the 4th being named Jimmy. Now how Jimmy's name stuck to the pepper I don't know, but I'm sure glad this sweet succulent pepper made its way here!
Jimmy Nardello peppers are sweet, crisp and light when eaten raw. Jimmy Nardello has long been considered one of the best frying peppers because their fruity raw flavor becomes creamy and soft when fried. When Jimmy Nardello turns from deep green to fire-engine red, fry like Giuseppe did in olive oil with fresh garlic and serve with your favorite entree. Don't forget a glass of Sonoma County wine!
Jimmy Nardello fruits are red, long, tapering, thin-walled, and slightly curved, 3/4" to 1-1/4" at the shoulder and 6" to 9" long.
Sweet and rich flavor, with virtually no heat at all.
