Jimmy Nardello

Out of stock

This looks like a hot number, but the Jimmy Nardello Pepper is actually one of the best heirloom sweet types to come out of Italy! Fry it or dry it, but definitely try it. It’s compact, easy to grow and needs little encouragement to produce heaps of glossy red fruits—in almost any climate. Thin skin; 80-90 days from transplant.

Each packet contains approximately 25-30 seeds.

Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Crops require full sun, fast draining soil and regular water. Peppers grow best when temperatures are warm and need substantial heat to set fruit. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost or, depending on your climate zone, sow directly in the garden after the soil has warmed. Allow 1-1/2 feet between plants in all directions; provide support for varieties that grow over one foot tall.

Harvest fruits early and often — the more you pick the more they will produce. Always cut — do NOT pull — fruits from plants. Most varieties can be eaten when green or under-ripe, however, the flavor improves as plants mature.
