Legit and Good Seed...?

Hi All.

Hoping you guys can suggest some good sellers of hot pepper seed?

Also, looking for Banana and Bells.

Thanks,

Tropicalfreak

Seems like the most popular grower on this site is: www.thehippyseedcompany.com
There are several other reputable ones too. Some send different seeds than ordered. Usually cheaper seeds. I got mine from pepperjoe.com and so far I am very happy. He has a good rep on this forum also. Here is a link to a thread on seed providers. http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/pepper/msg1100564129573.html
Also, many trade seeds on this site so you might want to explore that avenue as well.

I got my bhut seeds from New Mexico State University's Chili Pepper Institute.

I have purchased from tomatogrowers and peppermainia with good luck. I've never heard anything bad about either place.

Do not purchase chile seed from Reimers or EBay.....do a search on both.

Let me second Hippyseedcompany and Chile pepper institute.

And let me discourage anyone from ordering from Seedrack.

I second Peppermania. Beth Boyd is one of the most ethical people to deal with. I have bought several varieties of seeds from her and have never been disappointed. Totally Tomatoes is also a good company ... just not the variety as someone like Peppermania.

Tomato Growers might be best for what you are looking for.
Bells and a good selection of chiles.
Some of the links below sell both sweet and hot non bell chiles but no bell type or very few bells.

Local to Fla.(I'm in Palm Beach), true Bhuts and I had 95%+ germination.

Sorry, didn't check b4 posting. Looks like they'll be shipping about May 23 though.

I got my original Bhut Jolokia seeds last year from Jamie at thehottestpepper.com

Harvested seeds from last year's plants for this year's crop (sorry Jamie).

Can't wait for new peppers! I only have about a pound left in the freezer.

Bhutheads.com has some good Ghost Pepper and Hab seeds. We have had no problem growing them!

There's been a lot of complaints about Reimer Seeds. They got a 64% negative rating over at the Dave's Garden site. Also a thread at Garden Web. Why bother with them?

If I had one penny left to my name, I wouldn't give it to Reimers. Well, unless it was for a donation box to get them shut down permanently.

Reimers results from this year:

9 varieties, 6 seeds each all C. baccatum.
2 varieties sprouted 4 seeds each.
1 variety sprouted 3 seeds.
That's 11/54X100=20% (about) germination.
Now to find out if any are true to type. Shoud know by August.
