Jimmy Nardello Sweet Pepper (Capsicum annuum)

These Italian heirloom peppers may appear to be hot peppers, but they actually have a sweet wonderful flavor. They are capable of being highly productive throughout the season even in wetter or cooler weather. The peppers were originally grown in the Basilcata region of Italy but came to the United States with the Nardello family when they immigrated to Connecticut in the late 1800s. The plants are grown by home gardeners today throughout the United States and Canada.
