Hi everybody,
I was on the point to buy seeds from pepper joe for a budget of $150.
After googling the name I came to this website and I have read many messages of experienced people that say to avoid pepper joe.
Others suggested other sites some are specialized in tomatoes or other vegetables.
But the majority of these messages are outdated
From your personal experiences, please tell me what are the websites for hot chili pepper seeds
NB: I'm not talking about any advertisement but just your personnal experience.

RE: Good places to buy seeds

please list which pepper varieties you're looking for.

you'll find many members of this forum, myself included, will happily give away seeds for free (we generally have lots to spare).

so, what's a good place to get seeds? right here!

RE: Good places to buy seeds

The guy lives in Algeria.
Postage could suck big time.

I'd avoid Pepper Joe if I was you...

Rainbow Chilli seeds has a cool collection,Tomato Growers is also OK.

Here is a link that might be useful: Rainbow Chili seeds

RE: Good places to buy seeds

As @smokemaster_2007 said I live in Algeria (southern part of the mediteranean) and we only have two varieties of peppers (cayenne and bull's horn).
Therefore, there are a lot of varieties I don't know well and want to have fun growing them.
Jalapeno, Habanero, piri piri seem to be Ok to begin with.

Also if you know a good place in Europe that sells good quality peppers It will be easier for shipping.

Thank you :) !

Thanks to all of you for your contributions.
I think that I finally made my choice.
It was a pleasure to come here and find friendly people on this forum.

Once again thank you.

RE: Good places to buy seeds

Welcome aboard!

I sent some seed to Hungary last season, and it was just standard postage...a couple American stamps. Maybe I got lucky...?


RE: Good places to buy seeds


You don't have email turned on in your profile page. If by chance you are checking your post, send me an email via my profile page (jus click on ottawapepper at the top of this post). I can set you up with a few interesting varieties.

I've successfully sent seeds to Eastern Europe, South America and Australia in the past. I'm willing to give the Southern Mediterranean a shot ;-)

another place

Here is a link that might be useful: semilas la palma

RE: Good places to buy seeds

I second semilas la palma. I've ordered from Semilas for a couple years now. Peters prices and shipping are very resonable.

RE: Good places to buy seeds

Yeah, Josh makes a good point. If you ship First Class Letter, then postage to Timbuktu isn't bad at all. It's when you start shipping packages that you have to mortgage the children.

You can put a lot of seeds in a "letter".
