I'm from Nebraska. Never heard of anything other then bell, banana and jalapeno peppers. I moved to Texas. Surprisingly that only added a few more pepper types like habanero. A few months ago my daughter (membership in death thumb club) purchased a multi pack of different peppers. She waited for me. As I planted them the variety surprsed me. Later, I went online looking for tips etc to keep them alive. I got a shock. Habanero wasn't the hottest pepper in the world! There were others. I had heard of none. I began searching. I discovered Pepper Joe's site. I kept coming back not just because of the seeds but the teaching, written and video. Then the decision of what to get kept me stewing. Seasons isn't a problem. This is South Central Texas. I had started the other seeds a few weeks ago. Plans were to over winter them. At Pepper Joe's, I discovered I could raise my peppers in containers. That's my personal preference. I don't like seed starting trays. I have a high failure to thrive w transplanting aka most die. Watching a Pepper Joe video on a different subject shocked me. He had a good size pepper plant in a plastic cup. Cup seemed abour 12 ounces. Off to the dollar store I went. I planted the remaining of my original seeds in those cups. Nearly all survived w 2 or more true leaves. That's around 30 cups w 2 or more plants. I can let them grow getting a goid root system improving transplant survival.Now I have addition of 32 more cups w this Pepper Joe variety pack and a few others I purchased. Each pkg had 10+ seeds. Most had 12 to 13 seeds. I have to look up what the free 'bubble gum' seeds are. I can't wait for these to sprout.
These took awhile to get going but man once they started producing, they didn't stop until my first frost! Little advice, make sure your nutrients is perfect. I see a lot of people complaining about germination rates, THESE ARE SUPER HOTS, seeds aren't going to sprout over night like they sometimes do with jalapenos/habs.
bought the seeds, received them fast. Have several each of 5 different peppers growing now, looking so forward to getting some peppers off these plants. They did not all germinate, but it was about 98% success rate. They are growing VERY well so far. I started them a little late, but live in S.C. on the coast, so very long growing season. I have even shared some seeds with friends, they are just as excited as I am. Thank you Pepper Joe.
My wife and son bought me "Volcano in a box",which is the same seed here..for Christmas 2 years ago..best dang thing I ever received for Christmas! The gift that keeps burning! Best if you start in doors around January they will get large enough to put outside after the last frost...A plus factor is that you will never run out of seeds! Just save some from you last harvest and you will have next years seeds ready to start all over again!
