Pepper Joe Reaper...
I'm going to tell it like it is. No BS.. I have seen all the questions about all the seed vendors, and this is the place to place our info. So here it is.
I purchased 20 Carolina Reaper seeds a few months ago from Pepper Joe. Germinated them in between paper towels in small plastic sauce containers on a heat mat.
Honest results... Out of 24 seeds I received (4 extra), only 8 have germinated. And the very first one that did has me wondering what it actually is... What do you think. The one on the left looks like all my other seedlings. But the other is much darker and rounded leaves.
