This Slow Food ‘Ark of Taste’ heirloom is fabulously productive as well as delicious, each 2-foot-tall plant providing dozens of narrow 8” sweet peppers. Frying them is the traditional way to go, green or red. Jimmy Nardello’s mother Angella brought seeds from Italy in 1887, and Jimmy kept the variety going, eventually passing it on to the Seed Savers Exchange.

Culture: Seeds germinate at 80 degrees, and young plants are very frost-sensitive, so start indoors in March or April for best results.

Approx. 60 seeds per packet
Grown in Potter Valley, Mendocino County, California
Certified Organic by CCOF
Open-pollinated, non-GMO

So I bought seeds from Bakers Creek and could not get my Jimmy Nardellos to germinate. Tried three times. Finally jumped on Etsy and found this seller. The seeds arrived quickly, I planted immediately and within 3 days, all my seeds had germinated. Wish I had not waited two months trying on the others. Very happy with my purchase!



Beautifully packaged. Have not yet tried to germinate them.


Arrived fast, I'm excited to see how they grow. Thanks!


DO NOT BUY! I’ve tried germinating the Jimmy Nardelos twice with none of them germinating. Did the wet towel inside a ziploc bag with a grow mat. I germinated over 10 varieties the first time and a few more the second time with the Jimmies. I sent a message to customer service a week ago and with no response. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY.
