(Capsicum annuum) Given to SSE by Jimmy Nardello whose mother
brought the seeds to the U.S. when she immigrated
with her husband Guiseppe from the Basilicata
region of Italy in 1887. One of the very best for
frying, delicious roasted apple flavor. Productive
plants are loaded with glossy red 10" long peppers.
Very popular within SSE circles. 80-90 days from
8 weeks before last frost
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best
in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful
until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors
until soil is warm.
