Jimmy Nardello Pepper is an Italian heirloom that impresses everyone who tries it. The rich sweet flavor is so great, that it has been placed in “The Ark of Taste” so as to preserve its amazing taste. These peppers have been growing in the US since 1887 when the Nardello family brought them over from Italy.

These pepper plants will grow pretty low and wide, reaching about 2 ft. off the ground and 2 ft. in width. You may have to possibly stake this plant to support its large yields of these long, thin stringy pods that can get to 10" in length! Watch them mature from green to their vibrant, shiny red color with a smooth texture and medium-thick crispiness.

Jimmy Nardello Peppers are the ultimate pepper for frying, drying, pickling – anything that involves them eventually hitting your taste buds! It's hard not to when their delectably sweet flavor comes with 0 heat - what's not to love?!

Growing good. Waiting for fruit

Took awhile to germinate and sprout but patience has been rewarded with a very healthy pepper plant with great strong central stocks and medium to large leaves. No fruit yet but I know that is still a ways off. Can’t wait for the peppers.

Getting Started

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
