Many years ago a good pepper-head friend from Brooklyn casually introduced this variety to my family. We were trading seeds and he threw in a packet with a couple of hots. Whatever. There was an extra planter that season and we tossed the seeds in late; no head start! Wow! We were blown away. It turns out that Jimmy Nardello peppers have been around for quite a long time. How the heck did we miss this one? A decade later and we're still growing "Jimmies". Every year this variety pumps out shiny red pods, clean, and long. We find it the best pepper for a nice big sausage and pepper hero. But we use them with onions for steak and fresh on a cold cut sandwhich. If you're looking for a consistent, easy to grow, sweet pepper this season, Jimmy Nardello is the one to get. It never disappoints!
From our supplier:
76 days to maturity. Open-pollinated. This thin-walled 8" frying pepper has won many converts. The long curved tapering pointed fruits turn deep red with shiny wrinkled skin when ripe. Pleasing sweet mild flavor, good raw, in stir-fries and, especially, fried. According to Nardello family relative Patty Ruprecht of Pownal, Maine, “the only way to eat them is to string them, dry them, fry them and salt them.” Eat them plain or “better still as a sandwich on Italian bread with a slice of provolone.” Listed on Slow Food’s Ark of Taste. Brought to Connecticut from the village of Ruoti in the Basilicata region of southern Italy in 1887 by Jimmy Nardello’s mother.

We never 'pass the savings' of expensive shipping charges to the customer and always ship as economically as possible. Sometimes this becomes a juggling act between cost-of-goods vs. cost-of-container vs. shipment size vs. shipping cost vs. margins. With combined shipping, it's all in the packing and we'll always find the most inexpensive shipping method available. But there are times when it's impossible to ship economically and we'll always let you know before paying.
