Video Reviews of Delicious Nardello pepper. 60+ fresh organic seeds for 2018

A superb Italian pepper was grown each year by Giuseppe and Angella Nardello,  in the village of Ruoti, in Southern Italy. In the late1880's they set sail with their one-year-old daughter Anna for a new life in the USA. 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 that this variety has been placed in "The Ark of Taste" by the Slow Food organization. Ripens a deep red, is very prolific, and does well in most areas.I first began to grow these peppers in the 1990's and have grown them every year since simply because they are one of the best tasting sweet peppers I've ever crunched. Almost like a red bell with a mix of apple flavor.  the fruit size is 6-10" long and average7.5" x 1-1.5" in width. I have had a few questions from customers asking about germination and such. Of which I always learn something new in the communication process.  I sow them directly into the potting mix a 1/4 inch deep. I use the mini-cells and generally put 2-3 seeds in each and if they all should come up I just snip the weaker ones off. I have heard horror stories about slow germination for Nardello's but I've never had any problems, usually 6 -10 days if the soil can be kept between 70-85F (80 is ideal). They certainly do not germinate as quickly as most tomato's but I've never noticed much difference between Nardello's and a typical Bell. They do not take as long as the notorious "super hot" chili's.You can use wet paper towels or a few soggy coffee filters in a small bowl loosely covered with saran wrap with a heat mat underneath or on top of the fridge or water heater at 70-85F. I usually do this for germination testing, mostly because I just don't like handling the seeds after that tiny sprout happens (very fragile).The plant itself is not a small pepper and in fairly ideal conditions it can easily grow upwards of 30" or more, so a person might want to keep that in mind. I don't fertilize them much until they flower and use a low nitrogen content 4-6-10 or maybe 5-10-10 or something like that. When they are seedlings, or even after they have grown, DO NOT over water them. Wait until they are looking a little droopy and the soil looks dry. Watering is not a big concern when they are in the great outdoors grown in this area. In hotter dryer climates naturally they will need more.  Best tasting long sweet pepper I've ever grown. there is a reason Ive grown these for over 20 years. I usually get 20-25 large red fruit per plant. They are good green as well, just not as sweet. One spring I covered the plot they were growing in with 6 inches of cow manure, and the summer temps were ideal that year. 40-50 peppers per plant would be an understatement. The freezer was loaded with 'em that year. Super sweet with a apple taste. Nothing like them.Please see my growing listings of growables. Any problems please contact me.Take care,Joel
