Product Overview

Capsicum annuum

Discover a new garden staple! Sweet, rich flavor reminiscent of roasted apples. Excellent for frying or salsa; makes a wonderful paprika.

This Italian heirloom was brought to America by the Nardello family in 1887, and named for the most garden-devoted of their 11 children, Jimmy. The 6"-12" peppers have an exceptionally sweet, rich flavor, making them the quintessential Italian frying pepper. Delicious in chili and salsa, or dried and ground for paprika. Prolific plants grow well in most areas.

Variety Info
