Jimmy Nardello Peppers (Organic)

Roots to River Farm


8 oz

These bright red peppers were brought over from Basilicata by Jimmy Nardello's mother, and in the mid 80s, he made the seeds of these particular peppers available to other farmers, hence why they are named after him. Though they are a vibrant, fire truck red, these peppers are only very mildly spicy and are used more as a sweet pepper, similar to a bell pepper. These peppers are the preferred choice for frying, so use these guys to make the best sausage and peppers of your life, or try stuffing them with cheese and frying them whole, or simply blistering shishito style. They also make a crisp, sweet, refreshing summer snack all on their own. No matter which way you decided to make these, you are in for a real treat.



Roots to River Farm

New Hope, PA

Female-owned and operated, founder Malaika Spencer fell in love with farming early on in life, and dedicated herself to learning how to restore overworked land and ecosystems while providing the most nutrient dense produce possible. Because of this, Roots to River Farm aims to transcend the economic, ecological and cultural devastation created by the industrial agriculture system by providing high quality certified organic produce directly to its local community. They believe that good farming is a public service, and want to provide a product that is of the highest quality, the most nutritious, beautiful and affordable while also offering a connection between consumers and the farm. In addition to being certified organic they utilize resilient agricultural techniques such as reduced-tillage, intensive cover cropping, integrated pest management, occultation, contour tillage, and organic compost applications to create a farm that provides the community with incredible food while also nurtures the soil and ecology of our farm and the people who work there.
