Early Italian heirloom from the Nardello family. 2-foot plants. Thin, tapered 8-10 inch long, crinkly fruits ripen to bright red. Sweet, slightly spicy, smokey flavour. Freezes and dries well. Very prolific.
Start indoors in a warm location 8-10 weeks before setting out. Sow seeds in flats or pots or prepared mix, 1/4 inch deep and 2 inches apart. Keep soil moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source as soon as feelings appear. Transplant when seedlings have 2-3 sets of true leaves into individual pots or deep flats. Acclimate seedlings gradually to outdoor conditions when summery weather prevails, then set out 203 feet apart in rich, well-drained soil.
