I have ordered from Pepper Joe's for two years and every seed they sent grew into a beautiful and producing plant. I grew Carolina Reapers last year and they were HOT and beautiful. I will always order from Pepper Joe.

These guys are the real deal. I am a Chilihead through and through and I love this company, but they carry a line of products applicable to whatever you are looking for, including mild/not hot bell peppers and a cool selection of tomatoes too. The customer support center is responsive and I got an email answer from the owner to one of my questions which I thought was cool.

Highly recommend this Company if you are a gardening pro or even just getting into growing peppers

I have ordered from Pepper Joe's on several occasions with great success. This last time, my order got lost in the mail. When I contacted them, they sent the tracking #, etc - when I explained that it showed 'delivered' but never got here they very nicely (and very quickly) sent out a replacement order. That kind of customer service has earned them a customer forever! Plus, their seeds are great! My growing buddy and I had more Nagas and Scorpions than we knew what to do with!

Ordered on Oct. 18th. Have not recieved my order yet. Emailed their customer service over 24 hours ago and havent recieved any reply.I would have hoped a company with no phone customer service would be prompt when replying to emails. I understand things happen but it seems that their \\\"express 3-4 day shipping\\\" is bogus, and their customer service is so far subpar.

Looks like they did respond to me right away however it must have been sent to my spam folder. They followed up and i did recieve that response.

I've been getting seeds from PepperJoe since I was first shown his catalog. That's been a few seasons now and even when the rare issue arises from a variety that isn't what's expected, etc. I've had to do nothing more than shoot him an email and the problem is fixed. Most times the fix comes with several packets of free seeds included. Can't ask for more than that from a fella now can you?

Pepper Joe has the best selection of pepper seeds I have ever seen. I have been buying seeds from Joe for a couple of years now. Every order I have placed has been correct, fast, and comes with helpful growing tips. The free seeds with every order is a fun surprise too. I have had nearly perfect germination rates. I can count on one hand how many seeds out of all of my orders have not sprouted, and there is a good chance it was something I did wrong. I think it is great that every order comes with a support system too. I cant think of another place that will email or get on the phone with you if you need help with growing your plants. Overall I have had nothing but AWESOME products and service from Pepper Joe. I recommend his site to everyone from seasoned growers to the capsicum curious! You can't go wrong with!

Dealing with Pepper Joe has been nothing short of phenomenal. Quality seed, pods, flakes, sauces, etc... for sale as expected. But great customer service. And free helpful hints, tips, and videos about growing pepper plants. There isn't a business owner out there who is as dedicated to seeing his customers succeed as Pepper Joe.

Customer service is great too! I've been dealing with is business for a year now. Had one goof up where the wrong seed got sent to me. It was resolved very quickly. They told me not to worry about sending the seed back, keep it and grow it, and they got me the right seed out the door with no added shipping expense occurred by me.

I have had so much fun over the last year, along with a lot of hard work and perseverance growing peppers that I'm now selling my own sauce. And Pepper Joe has unknowingly had a big hand in that. If I run into a problem growing peppers, he's my go to person for answers.

I bought a few packs of seeds from PepperJoe's and to my surprise almost every single seed sprouted! I had no idea what I was going to do with over 35 plants. I had to give some away to friends, family and a co-worker. I asked PepperJoe's for advice on Facebook because this is my first try and I got a very helpful response right away. I'm really looking forward to this years harvest and experimenting in my kitchen. They have so many kinds of seeds to pick from I'm already making plans for next years garden.

Now, let's get to the good stuff, the seeds I've bought from them have produced amazing plants that yield peppers and tomatoes year after year. When starting them, I used a grow light and controlled environment and had almost 100% success with the seedlings.....
Being in the Southern California desert, I have a different season, yet my Pepper Joe grown plants are thriving quite well!
I'm very happy with Pepper Joe's and recommend them to all my friends and family...
Also, I've emailed them numerous times with questions and they always reply quickly, usually the same day.

Hello everyone,

I dont like doing this, and i\\\'ve read a lot of great reviews about Pepper Joes, but I have to give a negative review here.

My order (about 70$) was placed February 24th this year. Today is May 19th, and i have yet to receive my order.

My complaint here is mostly the customer service, besides the fact i have yet to receive my order. Ive emailed the customer support 4 times now over the course of the last 3 months. I waited a full month before emailing the first time. I live in Canada, i dont have a tracking number, an i have no idea where my 70$ order is.

When i emailed customer support, all they tell me is that \\\'Canada Post is notoriously slow\\\'. They double checked my mailing address, but basically just told me to wait.

Now, I\\\'ve ordered a TON of stuff from USA in the past. Computer parts, mushroom spores, seeds from other companies, espresso machines, cases of wine, ebay books... I\\\'ve literally never had an experience that even remotely resembles this. In fact, all of mail order experiences from USA have been totally positive.

So, im not really sure why Pepper Joe customer support keeps telling me that \\\"Canada Post is slow\\\". It doesn\\\'t seem to be the problem here.

If Pepper Joe keeps having troubles shipping to Canada, why is there not options available to the customer? I would have happily paid 20$ extra to have it shipped reliably, and with a tracking number. Blaming Canada Post over and over isn\\\'t really convincing me that its Canada Post fault here. There are tons of reviews of Pepper Joe for Canadian customers that have had LOTS of problems with shipping, so why not try to change the way you are shipping these items? And at least provide your customers with a tracking number....

Anyway, ive emailed customer support 4 times now, but it seems that the only way to get some action happening is to post a review on a site like this one. Ive noticed Pepper Joe is very quick to rectify problems when a bad review is posted on a public site like this, so i hope it works better than customer support.


On May 19th, 2015, Raug changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

Got through to someone looks like. They are offering to ship my order again free of charge, or the option to refund my money.

Im choosing to have my order shipped again, because im still excited about these seeds for next year.

Im changing my rating from negative to neutral for the time being until my order arrives.

On May 31st, 2015, Raug changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Pepper Joe has come through in a very positive way.

Seeds were reshipped via Xpress post May 21st and i received them May 29th.

Thanks so much ! Ive changed my review to positive.

I ordered about 20 different peppers from Pepper Joe's and I've had excellent success with them, about a 90% germination rate. All of the plants are big and healthy, so I'm sure they came from good stock. Shipping was quick, they sell all kinds of peppers, pepper products, and growing supplies, but one of the best things about Pepper Joe is their web site, which is full of great tips and pretty much everything hot pepper. I will definitely be ordering my seeds from Pepper Joe next year!

My roommate and I ordered from Pepper Joe about a month ago (maybe more!) and we still haven\'t received anything we ordered yet. I understand it may take longer to get to Canada, but it\'s been over a month and no hint as to when we can expect them.

We tried to email representatives at Pepper Joe to get a tracking number and they haven\'t or can\'t provide one.They told me to contact my postal carrier, but how am I to know who to contact when it can be shipped with so many different companies? If it\'s my regular postal carrier, then they should definitely have a tracking number anyways since I always get one with Canada Post.

We were so excited to start growing these peppers after hearing great things about Pepper Joe, but after this experience, we will have to strongly consider just going through a local supplier in the future. If we do not receive our order soon, a charge back will also be happening.

Sorry Pepper Joe, I wish I didn\'t have to charge back, but I will not pay for something I have not received, nor received adequate help tracking down.

Pepper Joe himself emailed me almost immediately after I posted this review and offered to send out a replacement package with priority shipping at his own cost.

I have now received the priority mailed package. I'm not sure what happened to my original package, but I truly do appreciate the speed in which Pepper Joe replied to my complaint, as well as the lengths he went through to rectify my situation.

Great customer service Pepper Joe, I will definitely come back to fulfill my future pepper needs!

Just a PS to all the Canadian growers out there, I recommend ordering your seeds 3-4 weeks before you plan on germinating them, just to be safe!

Hi FoodDude87 and thanks for being a customer and thanks for your input. We haven\\\'t had a negative review at Dave\\\'s Garden for over a year so I want to respond quickly and with conviction.
The Canadian Post office is notorious for being slow. We\\\'ve even considered not shipping to Canada for that reason....but we have so many satisfied customers there we decided to just tough it out with the slow deliveries. We ship all orders out within 3 to 4 business days. But then some orders get into gridlock with the poor service at the Canadian Post Office. .
But the only order that matters is YOUR ORDER! I sent your issue to Shipping when you first contacted me to make sure it was shipped out on time. It was. Please email me direct one more time with your order number.... I\\\'ll ship a replacement order \\\"Priority Mail\\\" at our expense... one more time. And we\\\'ll do it gladly. If you receive two orders....and you probably will just keep them both as our way of saying THANKS. Sorry about the delay, and keep us posted on how it turns out.

2013 was my first attempt at gardening (zone 5) and I had no idea what I was doing or where to buy my seeds. As a result of my inexperience and lack of knowledge, I had poor germination rates, but I'm still hooked on growing my own vegetables, so I decided to expand my garden.

This year I have spent more time looking around for local guys or at least proponents of organic seeds. After reading reviews here and perusing the Pepper Joe website I decided to order some seeds. Really the site is wonderful help for beginners. It is chalk full of information. I only ordered 3 packets - one Pepper Joe Jalapeno and 2 Pepper Joe Cayenne. Sorry folks, I can't handle the hotter peppers yet. Maybe someday! Plus, I really enjoy the wonderful flavor of both Jalapeno's and Cayenne.

Anyway, I received one PJ Jalapeno, one Cayenne and one Cayenne blend in less than a week. I'm glad I was sent a blend by accident because it will be interesting to see what color fruits I end up with. All of the seeds were whole and looked to be good quality. I also received a packet of hot sapporo seeds and takanotsume (hawk claw) which both look pretty awesome. Seeing as how I have already bitten off more than I can chew this year regarding the size of my garden, I'll save those two for next year.

So last year I only got 33% (I had no idea what I was doing) of my seeds from a big box store to germinate. I think they sold "Botanical Interests" or something like that. This year I did a little bit better all around. My Pepper Joe Cayenne seeds had about a 71% germination rate and my Jalapenos had an 83% germination rate. I would consider that very good for a novice like me. In fact it's so much more than I expected, I am trying to give some of my other plants away so I can fit all of my peppers in the garden. I'm going from 6 hot peppers last year to 36 this year. I thought I'd share that as a point of reference.

Also, it has been just over a month since I planted the seeds in the seed trays and the peppers are growing well with great color.

I plan to buy more seeds from Pepper Joe's next year. If you haven't spent some time looking through the website I would recommend it.

I love Pepper Joe's! It's my go-to for peppers. There are so many varieties! I've had great success with all my orders and I feel confident that I am getting non-GMO seed. This is important to me. I also enjoy getting the free seed gifts. It gives me an opportunity to love something I might otherwise not have tried.
