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?!

I looked everywhere for these particular seeds. Thankfully Pepper Joe's had them! Great customer service and fast shipping. Can't wait for them to mature so I can eat them! Thanks Pepper Joe!!!

So far, so good.

Although they haven't been potted up yet I have had 100% germination of all seeds started

John Till
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!
