Jimmy Nardello Pepper Seeds


The Jimmy Nardello Pepper is a sweet Italian frying pepper with a long history. Originally from Southern Italy, this pepper seed was brought to Connecticut in the late 1800s by the Nardello family and saved for years by their son Jimmy who passed the seed along in the early 1980s. Over 120 years later it has become a favorite of home gardeners and chefs for its rich, complex fruity flavor and history. 

Plants produce many deep red, mild peppers that are curved and measure around 5 inches long.
