Jimmy Nardello's Pepper
A Sweet Italian frying pepper with a long history.
Originally from Basilicata, a southern region of Italy, this pepper seed was brought to Connecticut in the late 1800s by the Nardello family and saved for years by their son Jimmy who passed the seed along in the early 1980s. Over 120 years later it has become a favorite of home gardeners and chefs for its rich, complex fruity flavor and history. Easy to grow, throwing out loads of peppers that turn bright red. Historically, they were also dried by threading them through the stems and hung up for use during the winter.
