Slow Food chose Jimmy Nardello Peppers to be included in its Ark of Taste because they are “sweet and light when eaten raw. [They are] considered one of the very best frying peppers as [their] fruity raw flavor becomes perfectly creamy and soft when fried.” We have found them to be quite productive on their two foot tall plants.
This pepper is a southwestern-style Anaheim chili with thick, crisp flesh and mild heat. Harvest green and use for stuffing, grilling and roasting.
Some like it hot and if you do, try these flaming red peppers. These Cayennes will make your buffalo wings a hit at your next big game party. They are also a good choice for grinding. The Cayenne Pepper plants grow to two to two and one-half feet tall and produce four to six inch peppers.
This long yellow chile has the heat of Cayenne. We grew the Sarit Gat for the first time last year and were impressed with its production. Its canary color is stunning and the plant would be a terrific addition to a large pot.
