I bought these peppers because I grew them last year in Texas. However, have moved to a different state where the winters are colder and the last frost later. I will start growing these peppers in small paper pots late this month or the beginning of next month. As need requires, they will be transplanted into bigger pots until mid to late April. I am so looking forward to being able to grow some more. Great tasting peppers.
In fact, just planted yesterday. Have planted your seeds for many years now, and love the results. We can plant for two different seasons here in the desert. Temps yesterday finally were under 100 degrees. Started. Tomato and pepper seeds in the shade under my patio about a month ago. Now hardy to the warmer temps. Will let u know how everything goes. I get a bunch of seed catalogues every year, but continue to purchase seeds from you. The seeds have never failed me.
Vigorous seedlings - still inside. Have had same variety from different vendor and much smaller than yours - planted same day.Hopeful for outdoors!
Seriously, grow Jimmy Nardello. I'd seen it raved about in gardening groups, and figured it was probably a very nice pepper, but certainly not all they were saying. Well, it's everything they were saying, and more. Unbelievably prolific, wonderfully sweet, reliably turns red, even in Oregon summers -- it's the perfect pepper. I take them and cut them into rings and freeze them to add them to stir-fries or stews the rest of the year. Legendary, and definitely worthy of its reputation!
I have been growing Jimmy Nardello Peppers for at least 8-years. They are an Italian Variety within a 100 miles or so of Naples, Italy. They are a sweet pepper and delicious on a good year they at quite productive you might get 20 or so peppers a plant. They get about 6" long and 1-1/8" in diameter at the stem. They turn a beautiful glossy red/green color when they ripen. They are dependable and easy to grow.
