Jimmy Nardello Pepper Seeds

$3.00

Jimmy Nardello’s are a 75-day heirloom pepper that is great for frying, drying, or eating raw.  It is easy to grow and puts out an excellent yield. The plants are compact and can grow well almost anywhere.  They are disease-resistant, too.  They grow in a long bell shape and go from green to red without gathering heat.  They are thin-walled but are often up to 8 inches long.

This fine Italian heirloom pepper was grown each year by Giuseppe and Angella Nardiello at their garden in the village of Ruoti in Southern Italy. In 1887, they set sail with their one-year-old daughter Anna for a new life in the USA. When they reached these shores, they settled and gardened in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and grew this same pepper named for their fourth son, Jimmy. This long, thin-skinned frying pepper dries easily and has such a rich flavor that this variety has been placed in “The Ark of Taste” by the Slow Food organization. Ripens a deep red, is prolific, and does well in most areas.

Why Our Seeds Are Different

Locally Adjusted Heirlooms

All our seeds are heirlooms that are proven to be successful and stable for long term seed independence. We believe that fertile seeds produce more healthy food. We save local family heirlooms from extinction bringing these hardy cultivars to the seed banks, the marketplace and people’s tables.

Local Small Business

We are a homegrown seed and plant company with a suburban farm. We use urban sustainable agriculture with organic materials and no pesticides.  We grow the plants and save the seeds, herbs, and fruit. We make our own packaging and sell it at the local farmers’ market.

Home Made Products

We make our own ointments and teas from scratch. We grow some of the ingredients ourselves and source what we can locally. We believe in the power of nature to help heal, soothe, and comfort.  Try our teas for a lovely relaxing treat or our ointments to help with inflammation, pain, and skin conditions.
