Sorry it's been so long before you receive ,(if you do), my review. My last very POSTIVE review that I tried to post on Feb. 27, 2014, was HALTED/REJECTED!! I don't know where to post a NEW review for you, so here I am. I don't have this problem with Pepper Joe's.
Just want to see if this goes through before I post my REAL review. Thanks, Diane Huff..(bluemerle)

Yeah, it went through!! My comments about all my troubles with Watch dog's admin, Terry, are on Pepper Joe's comment/review site.
Anyway, All my Tomato seeds arrived quickly and safely in their secure bubble package. What beautiful seeds!! Nice and plumb, big and fresh looking. Such a difference from the last mail order seeds I got from Ebay. 3 germinated out of 20!!!
At your recommendation for my very HOT desert climate, I bought, " Arkansas Traveler" and "Floradade". Thank you for the 3 FREE packs of Tomato seeds--"Roma", (another heat tolerate one), and "Golden Jubilee" & "Rutgers Red".
Thanks about the shipping, too. I received 6 packs of seeds from Pepper Joe's on the same day I received yours.
I've heard this is going to be the hottest summer on record!!
I'll let you know how we all make it through!! With your usual great advice, I'm sure they'll do fine. Just hope I do...lol.
Your loyal customer, Diane Huff....(bluemerle)

I found Penny's Tomatoes doing web searches on growing tomatoes. I regularly go to her site for information on seeds, growing conditions, problems with tomatoes etc. I also have bought seeds from her and they were clean, well packaged and had a very good germination rate.

Thumbs up to Penny and Pepper Joe's seeds! Have had great results in the past, quick delivery times, great varieties (both Peppers and Tomatoes),and when needed they answered my gardening questions in a timely response. Their web site is informative, lots of pictures, recipes, and they seem to be always searching for/updating their seed inventories with new tomatoes/peppers. I would highly recommend their seeds to my friends and fellow gardeners.

We have ordered from Penny's for a few years now - we now grow amazing tomatoes every year! The Hillbilly Leaf tomatoes (my favorite of all time) are especially enormous this year - seriously as big as my hand - giants!!! Always satisfied with all of our tomatoes from Penny's.

Hi Zichron, Thanks so much for taking the time to give me a good rating and I'm so glad your seeds made it all the way to Israel. I usually ship within 24 hours of getting the order but I'm at the mercy of Customs when I ship out of country. I would love to see some pictures of your tomatoes should you get the chance to snap some...you can email them to me (I sometimes share them in my Newsletters) or you can join my Facebook page and share them with all 60,000 gardeners...we LOVE it!!

I have been buy from Penny's for 3 years now, I have had great germination every year. This year my first seed popped its little head up in 3 days, I had 2 more on the 4th day. I'm sure I will see all of them in the next day or two, When ever I need a question answered I can count on Penny to help me out in a quick manner. I've gotten seeds other places but have never been as happy with them as I am with Penny's Tomatoes, give her a try you won't be disappointed.

Hi and thank you for the great review...Wow 2 feet tall aready that's great! It's fun trying new varieties and experiencing the different flavors tomatoes offer. If you get a chance try one of my Black Tomatoes (dark purple really) they have such a smooth juicy flavor and are fast becoming some of my best sellers.

I really can't say enough good things about Penny's Tomatoes. In my experience in terms of reliability they surely cannot be beat. I always have virtually a 100% success rate for germination and all my plants are always vigorous producers. They are always great to deal with and my seeds usually arrive within days. There is always free seeds with every order and if you follow them on facebook you see that on top of free seeds they are always throwing in other goodies like free shipping from time to time. Their catalog lacks all the bells and whistles of most seed suppliers but what they do have is a huge, diverse selection of the some of the finest and rarest tomato varieties you can barely find elsewhere all at one supplier.

Penny's Tomatoes (and their counterpart, Pepper Joe's) are THE first source for tomato and pepper seeds. Their seeds have almost 100% germination and never fail to produce. Any store-bought brands (such as Burpee or Park) have continued to disappoint.... having to plant multiple seeds to make sure one comes up. With Penny's seeds, I KNOW they will sprout. And they grow FAST! I started my indoor plants later this year as they grew too fast last year.

First time buying from Penny and also Pepper Joe, and the seeds came really quick from S.C. to Ky. I had excellent germination numbers, and have lil buggers up about 2". I did manage to kill some , and I do have some stunted ones ( peppers mostly) so I ordered more , and again, prompt shipment was a good thing.

Thanks Penny for some amazing seeds. I bought the Boxcar Willie, Black Krim, Early Wonder, Black Seaman, San Marzano and rec'vd Homestead, Rutgers Red and Golden Jubilee's for free. It's only been a couple weeks since I planted my first batch and I have to report that I went with 2 seeds per peat pot - and had 2 sprouts from all but maybe 2 of them. But those two had 1. Started 5 of each... so that's pretty darn good germination rates!

I ordered two types of tomato seeds and got free seeds with the order. The free seeds actually turned out to be seeds that I wanted to buy but didn't end up choosing myself. It was a very nice surprise that I was sent such great seeds! Shipping was expected to be about a week, but I got my order within days.

I have ordered seeds from both Pepper Joe's and Penny's Tomatoes. They are quick to send my items to me, offer great shipping deals, include more seeds than promised per pack, and free packs of seeds with my orders. I was lucky enough to be gifted Serrano seeds in early September with my Carolina Reaper order. They are a vivacious and hardy plant. What a nice and unexpected bonus for my garden. At one point, I was confused as to the best care for some of my plants. I e-mailed the companies and received fast replies with expert advice on how to best maintain my plants. I am proud to be a loyal customer of PJ and PT and will continue to purchase seeds for myself and my friends through their site. I am the envy of my neighbors, even in the middle of winter, because I have tomato plants taller than myself growing in my indoor garden. Fresh tomatoes and peppers at Christmas will make any summer gardeners jealous. And if these plants can do this well inside, I can't wait to get my outdoor garden started in the Spring!!! Thanks PJ and PT for your abundance of seeds and advice! Loyally Yours, Amber

I can't say enough good things about Penny's Tomatoes. Orders are always filled promptly. I have had 90% or better germination rates with the seeds. The prices are excellent. I really recommend "Penny's Pick" and the "Black tomato collection." I may be biased because I do have a preference for black tomatoes - but it is a lot of seeds for your money. The "Penny's Pick" was especially good because she doesn't send old seeds she can't sell. She actually sends you some good seeds that will work in your growing zone.

I have never tried to grow anything from a seed before. Penny's Tomatoes guided me on what varieties to consider for my area, they shipped quickly and almost 100% of the seeds I started have sprouted. I now have so many plants that everyone I know will be getting tomato plants as gifts when they are old enough to leave home.
