Sweet Pepper – Jimmy Nardello ORGANIC
This pepper came to us from a friend and pepper enthusiast. Her praise for this delicious pepper was spot on! It is sweet, almost fruity, and stands up in cooking. For use on the farm, it almost replaces the need for bell peppers as they are much less fussy to grow. For those who like the flavor of peppers without the heat, this is a must-have!
Suggested Planting Requirements:
Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Do not overwater as this encourages diseases.
Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct sowing is not recommended but can be accomplished. Mulch for disease and weed control. Pinch all flowers until the main stalk reaches 18” for optimum support. In cooler areas, you may grow peppers in greenhouses or under cloches. Temperatures under 55°F may permanently damage peppers. Peppers can be grown in container gardens. Stake to keep fruit off the ground.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut; do not pull the fruit from the stems. These peppers may be harvested from the green stage through the color changes for varying flavor and texture. We love these peppers when they are super red! We slice them up raw and add them to salads, sandwiches, and more.
