Pepper plants arrived with aphids. Customer service denied my report and said plants were fine and healthy. Waste of time and money.

So sorry to hear that your plants arrived with aphids, that is definitely not the norm. I looked in our system and it appears you were refunded for the plants, so I'm glad that was able to be resolved. Hopefully you were able to rinse off the aphids before transplanting into your garden and you still have a bountiful harvest!

Thick walled tasty snack

A thick walled snack pepper. Do not over water the plants, I've damp out several seedling this way. Makes peppers just like you find in the supermarket--how often can you say that about a home ground veggie?!. I've found the Orange Sweetie to be the biggest producer last year. Ready to try the quartet again this year.

Capsicum annuum Our wide array of fabulous peppers, both sweet and hot, offers one of the richest sources of nutrients in the plant kingdom. Hot peppers contain capsaicin, which revs up your metabolism and reduces general inflammation in the body.
