The uncanny sweet, fruity flavor makes these peppers tempting and delightful eaten straight off the plant, but traditional Italian cuisine typically uses them for frying. The long 8”-10” slender fruits begin green and ripen to red. A super productive, disease-resistant and low-growing 20”-24" plant. Produces loads of peppers all season long. 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. 

Capsicum annuum (80 days) Heirloom - Open Pollinated 

Heat Level: Sweet    Scoville: None

~ Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. 

All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Prolific and super sweet

I've been growing Jimmys for years. I love the super sweet, rich flavor for frying and roasting. I ordered my seeds from Sandia this year and they were so much more prolific! I love Sandia seeds!

Sweet and Tasty Peppers

We grew these last year in our garden, and the plants were prolific for most of the summer, we ate them right off the plant. They're also great stir fried. We'll grow Jimmy Nardello seeds for our garden from now on.
