The uncanny sweet, fruity flavor makes these peppers tempting and delightful eaten straight off the plant, but traditional Italian cuisine typically uses them for frying. The long 8”-10” slender fruits begin green and ripen to red. A super productive, disease-resistant and low-growing 20”-24" plant. Produces loads of peppers all season long. Giuseppe Nardello brought this heirloom from Italy to the states, where it was introduced in 1887. This variety has been grown and cherished for generations.
