This variety of pepper was originally from Basilicata, a southern region of Italy. It takes its name from seed saver Jimmy Nardello, who brought the seeds from Italy while immigrating to Connecticut in 1887. This sweet pepper matures in 80-90 days from transplant, its fruits are 25-30 cm long and the plants can reach 60 cm tall. The Jimmy Nardello’s pepper is sweet and light when eaten raw. It is considered one of the very best frying peppers as its fruity raw flavor becomes perfectly creamy and soft when fried.
