Sweet Pepper - Jimmy Nardello


Capsicum annuum

HEIRLOOM. Shhh! Don't let the other peppers know, but after growing this heirloom you may never choose another variety. The thin walls and concentrated sugars make this a favorite sweet pepper for frying or roasting. Brought from Italy in 1887. Productive plants produce elongated fruits which ripen from green to glossy red. Included in the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste.
