Description

Jimmy Nardello - Sweet Italian Frying Pepper 

These cherished heirloom peppers have a very slightly spicy, smoky yet sweet and fruity flavor from their slender, tapering, wrinkled 6 - 10" long pods that turn from bright green to a fire-engine red when they are ready for harvest. Plants are low growing, 24" tall and highly productive.

This Italian frying pepper was brought from Ruoti, in the Basilicata region of southern Italy by the family of Giuseppe and Angela Nardello in 1887, and grown here ever since. Their son Jimmy continued the tradition and kept the treasured variety alive by saving seeds.

History

Indigenous to Central and South America, peppers were developed into a crop plant around 3,000 BC or perhaps even earlier. Columbus introduced Capsicum into Europe and it also spread to Africa and Asia.

Uses

Peppers are used fresh, dried, and cooked. Peppers contain vitamins A and C.
