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.

I have had good luck with Reimer seeds.

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.

For Bhut Jolokia go here:

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.

RE: Legit and Good Seed...?

I've had great luck with www.pepperjoe.com

RE: Legit and Good Seed...?

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.

Another Vote for PepperJoe!

RE: Legit and Good Seed...?

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.
