Description

This variety of pepper was originally from Basilicata, a southern region of Italy and takes its name from seed saver Jimmy Nardello, who carried the seeds from Italy while immigrating to Connecticut in 1887. This sweet pepper, which matures in 80-90 days from transplanting, produces 12-25cm attractive fruits, which may appear twisted or curled with a wrinkled, waxy skin. These peppers are sweet, fruity and mild when fresh, but when dried, the flavour becomes sweet, savory, and slightly smoky.

Sowing Advice

Surface-sow or barely cover the seeds indoors, and keep moist and warm above 20C. (Peppers generally demand warmer conditions than tomatoes to germinate successfully). When sprouts appear move them to a sunny window. Set out well-developed transplants when weather is warm. Peppers need rich moist soil and warm sunny conditions to flourish. Best sown in early spring.
