Bring Italy to your Pepper Garden

Jimmy Nardello
Heirloom - Sweet Italian Frying Pepper - Peperone!

Giuseppe Nardello brought this heirloom from Italy to the states, where it was introduced in 1887. This variety has been grown and cherished for generations. Its almost uncanny sweet, fruity flavor makes it so tempting and delightful to be eaten straight off the plant, but traditional Italian cuisine typically uses them for frying. Open-pollinated, Non-GMO.
