I look forward to growing these peppers. I was born in Chicago. I was raised in California but would go back every year to family and friends and eat these great peppers. Being Italian , those were great memories I want to recover.
One of our family favorites. We use the Melrose in a variety of dishes and salads. We ordered the seeds from Pepper Joe and the seedlings are sprouting . Every seed we used has started to come up. Very happy with my purchase and will be back for more!
Sorry, but the "Melrose pepper seeds I got do not "pack zero heat". They're hot. Not like jalapenos, but they're definitely hot. Plus, they only grow to about 3 in long and 3/4 in across. Some are short, squat and wrinkly, but most are long and narrow. I'm going to pitch the plants. What a huge disappointment after all that effort. I know I'm not the only customer who's made these remarks because customer service has admitted it and says it's being investigated, but I sure wouldn't buy Melrose pepper seeds from Pepper Joe's right now.
Hello, our Melrose are putting off a tad more heat than we expected. Please reach out to our customer service team and provide pictures, they would be happy to help! Thank you!
