Datil Peppers

Datils are my favorite pepper and these seedlings were perfect! The are strong, healthy plants and I expect to see some beautiful peppers this summer. I will most definitely be ordering more plants in the future.

Closest thing to Home grown

This is the second year I've ordered these from Pepper Joe's and so far so very good. The plants came wrapped like little Babies. So very excited to have my favorite Peppers Growing in my Garden 😁

I ordered two and they were delivered in great condition in very protective packaging. They transplanted into 16oz cups with potting mix and drain holes. They have grown well and hardened off nicely. They are about to go into large pots in the garden. Can't wait to see how they progress through the season.
