25+ Organically grown seeds. This Italian 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 for the Americas with their one-year-old daughter Anna for a new life. When they reached these shores, they settled and gardened in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and grew this same pepper that was named for their fourth son Jimmy. This long, thin-skinned frying pepper dries easily and has such a rich flavor. It is great fresh or dried. Ripens a deep red and does well in most areas. Check out our Facebook page for more info.
