Pepper: Jimmy Nardello Sweet Frying Pepper


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, California
Certified Organic by CCOF
Open-pollinated, non-GMO

I have never seen germination rates like this! Every single Jimmy Nardello seed that I planted germinated and is growing beautifully. Thrilled! And the seeds got here so fast!

Already germinated in less than 4 days after planting! Everything came packaged perfectly and the seeds looked great, excited to watch them grow. :D
