Jimmy Nardello Italian Heirloom Pepper Seeds

This variety was first introduced by Seed Savers Exchange and originally comes from the Basilicata region of Italy. Compact plants are very heavily loaded with 8-10" long peppers that are deep red with a glossy shine! Considered one of the best frying peppers, fruits have a sweet, fruity flavor when prepared. But, you don't have to fry these peppers! They taste great fresh in salads, or cooked in dishes. This variety is very popular and in great demand although it is often difficult to find in many stores and seed catalogs.

85 days from transplant to harvest.

Detailed planting instructions are included with each purchase!

I always add a few extra seeds in each packet in case I count wrong.
