Very easy for beginners!

This is my first grow and I didn't have the proper seed germinating equipment. However, 4 out of the 6 I germinated sprouted which is extremely high.

I have no clue why this happened, but somehow I got a germination in 3 days. This seems impossible, but it happened. Shipping was 2 days early and everything was packaged securely. Thank you for the wonderful service!


It grew

Had it growing in Mt front yard in a pot. Land lord had a guy come do weeding and for whatever reason decided to pick my plant. Before it was murdered it did flower and had tiny fruits on it.

Did not finish growing.😥

I am reviewing these seeds, even though the plants never got to get to the first flowers opening.

The seeds i got germinated quick, and the plants were nice and bushy, beautiful big dark green leaves and vigorous growth.
The problem i ran in to was a 120f heat wave that wiped out more than half my garden. Sadly i got a late start to my garden this year and due to that most of my plants were still out and growing when the harsh summer hit us. Sadly this was one of the plants that did not make it. I was so excited about it too. I still have a few seeds, and plan on starting them up much earlier next year.

Not quite as advertised.

Just started harvesting this years and these are strange little peppers. The plants themselves do indeed have purple peppers on them the problem is the purple peppers pack zero heat. I could literally eat handfuls of them like Bell Peppers. However at least the plants that grew for me had bigger peppers that grew in addition to the purple ones that were spicy. Problem is these were just normal red ghost peppers. So to summarize the seeds I got produced plants with purple (Small not hot) and red (ghost pepper hot) peppers. Still gotta iron the kinks out with this crossbreed.
