Back to Peppers    

Jimmy Nardello

One hundred and twenty years after the Nardello family set sail, from the port of Naples,  bringing a small piece of their homeland with them, the pepper that bears the family name is becoming a favorite among chefs and home gardeners. It’s a sweet mild just a little spicy frying pepper. Long tapered 8 to 10 inch fruits on bushy plants, turn bright red at maturity.

They are also delicious in your favorite chili or salsa recipe, and they are the best sweet pepper for drying. To dry them, string them on thread with a needle, careful to pierce them through the stem and not the fruit. Hang them near a sunny window or on the porch, and they’ll add decoration as they dry.
