Jimmy Nardello – A Culinary Treasure


Introducing the exquisite Jimmy Nardello, a pepper variety that stands as a testament to the rich tradition of Italian-American gardening. Named after the son of Italian immigrants, this heirloom pepper is cherished by chefs and gardeners alike for its unique combination of sweet flavor and subtle smokiness.

The Jimmy Nardello pepper offers an elongated, curved shape, reaching up to 6 to 9 inches in length. With its glossy, rich red skin, this variety is a feast for the eyes as much as it is for the palate. Its thin walls make it perfect for quick sautéing or roasting, enhancing its natural sweetness, while its low heat level ensures that it appeals to a broad range of taste preferences.  If there is any heat in this pepper, it is undetectable to our tongue.  Being sub 100 SHU, this pepper is an exquisite new, as of 2023, member of our sweet/mild pepper lineup!

Adaptable & Abundant

This variety develops a robust plant that adapts to various climates and thrives in full sun. Reaching maturity in approximately 80 to 90 days, gardeners can expect an abundant harvest of these non-bitter, delectable peppers, perfect for fresh salads, roasting, or even pickling.
