Jimmy Nardello Peppers
« on: February 01, 2018, 10:49:53 AM »
I have some seeds for Jimmy Nardello peppers, aka Italian frying peppers, which I had for the first time at Pizzeria Mozza a couple of months ago.  My mind was blown, and it made me completely forget about Calabrian chilis .   I don't have a green thumb.  Does anyone have any tips on how to get these seeds to grow?

We grew about 12 or so plants last year - in CA they should grow like weeds - we did some from starts and some from seeds. During the end of the season the last of them that did not fully ripen we picked green - they are good that way as well. What we can't eat we dehydrate.

I have a zone on my sprinkler just for the garden (with a drip system) - we just gave them water and the sunshine did the rest.

Corno Rosso (second photo) are also fantastic. This year we are going to try some pizza peppers from the territorial seed company....

Good luck!!!!

BTW, the good news is bugs don't seem to like them much - even aphids (which I think would eat me if I took a nap in the garden)....

Correction - just looked at my pepper list - the second photo was Topepo Rosso (very yummy) - but the one I named -- Corno Rosso (which is shaped more like the Jimmy Nardello Peppers) were great too.

How were they used on the pizza at Mozza? Did they go on raw or was there some sort of pre-bake cook/cure/pickle?

I don't think they were pickled, but they may have been fried beforehand.  They have had fried Jimmy Nardello peppers on the menu next door at Osteria Mozza as an appetizer

On your recommendation, I'm going to grow some too.
