Productive plants are loaded with glossy red 10" long peppers. This long, thin-skinned frying pepper dries easily and has such a rich flavor that this variety has been placed in "The Ark of Taste" by the Slow Food organization. Ripens a deep red, is very prolific, and does well in most areas. One of the very best for frying, having a delicious roasted apple flavor.

 

This fine Italian pepper was grown each year by Giuseppe and Angella Nardello, at their garden in the village of Ruoti, in the Basilicata region of Italy. In 1887 they set sail with their one-year-old daughter Anna for a new life in the USA. When they reached these shores, they settled and gardened in Naugatuck, Connecticut, and grew this same pepper that was named for their fourth son Jimmy. Jimmy Nardello shared seeds with SSE, giving all members and their friends and family the opportunity to preserve this family heirloom.

 

A Slow Food USA variety.

Michigan Heirlooms went SOLAR!

 

I had been wanting to utilize some alternative energy source for years. One day, I saw an ad on Facebook sponsored by PowerHome Solar & Roofing and I clicked on it. I couldn't have imagined where that simple click was going to take me.

Zero out of pocket expense.

91% of the entire properties electrical use manufactured right in my backyard.

Not every home qualifies, but if you are even slightly interested in learning if your home does, please click the link below which will redirect you to a new page and have the best salesman I have ever met give you a call - his name is James Johns (310-756-9487) and you have my word that he is ethical, honest and sincere.

Yes, I will get a referral bonus if you end up purchasing. But guess what? SO WILL YOU!

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ASK FOR JOHN JAMES AS YOUR SALESPERSON IF YOU CHOSE TO CALL DIRECTLY.
