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. Jimmy Nardello Peppers are the ultimate pepper for frying, drying, pickling – anything that involves them eventually hitting your taste buds! Plants grow low and wide, about 2 feet off the ground and 2 feet wide. Staking could be helpful for these. Expect large harvests of long, thin peppers that can reach 10 inches in length.

Fantastic peppers!

Bought 2 love plants that thrived and produced what is now a new family favorite. Bought 10 seeds just to see if the quality is consistent. So far, 100% germination rate on the seeds and the two adults moved indoors are still producing. Great plant and seeds!

Great Peepers

Joe’s Pepper seeds germinated nicely! We are growing in raised beds and have 120 plants. Looking forward to seeing a bountiful harvest and offering to our customers with our garlic!!!

Using a heater mat, light and seed sprouting dome every seed sprouted in under 2 weeks. These plants should thrive this summer

Only 1 seed germinated… ?????


Planted in nice starting soil on July 8th,
were supposed to germinate in 2-3 weeks
Nothing as of this writing on August 17th, 6 weeks later.
Kept moist in moderate sun, the sides are maybe 1/2” deep so clearly nothing is happening.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to grow. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85*. I hope this helps! Please give our customer service team a call at 888-660-2276 for additional questions.
