Where I can buy Super Hot Peppers in ATL area?

Bob_Mc(7b)May 24, 2014

The peppers I raised from seed this year(mostly super hot varieties such as Trinidad Scorpions and Carolina Reapers) didn't grow well, and I managed to kill most off by allowing them to sit too long in my mini-green house on a very hot day. Does anyone know of a source locally for this type of pepper. I did have a source in Birmingham, but due to health issues have been unable to travel this season to the nursery I normally purchased them from.

I guess I should have added that I'm located in Walton County about 25 miles from Athens, so I should include that in my search. But all this considered, I'll find a way to get to any source that is in the area.

Is there a farmer's market nearby that might sell vegetable seedlings? An internationally-minded market tends to cater to those that like hotter peppers (like those used in Thai/Chinese cooking for example).

I'll give that a try. I've been to several farmers markets around Atlanta. A few of which cater to the International crowd. I don't recall seeing plants for sale, but plenty of hot peppers. I'll check that out this week.

Check Hall's in Decatur/Stone Mountain. In the past they've carried Ghost, Fatalli, and various scotch bonnet plants, but you should call before making the drive as the plants listed on their website are sometimes not available.

Here is a link that might be useful: pepper list

Thank you very much. I called Halls immediately upon seeing your post. They have the varieties you mentioned in stock. I'll be stopping there bright and early tomorrow.
