Another satisfied customer, two years in a row now. Germination rates and test dates on the packages, affordable prices. They are in the next county West of us, so selection is especially appropriate, shipping is prompt and also affordable.

I have ordered from Willhite for many years. Most of my purchases have been melons and have had no problem with their seeds. The only "wish" I have is that they would bring back the "Sunder" muskmelon. It was the only muskmelon I grew that had a consistently delicious flavor. My surprise this year is that I grew their Jubilee ll that weighed 30 pounds and was the hit of my patch, sweet and very firm. (and my melons were close together, not conducive to large melons. Montana is not known for big watermelons.)

My family has done business with Willhite for over 50 years. I have had only good experiences with them. Their staff has gone out of there way to help me and my small farm. Their prices are reasonable, and the seeds have a good germination rate.

Ordered online in late January, got my seeds 10 days later. To me, that's very good, but my frame of reference is still the good old days where you had to mail in your order and then you might get it in three or four weeks. Prices were very good also. I'm happy so far.

I have ordered from Willhite for 10+ years. They have always shipped the correct order and I received it promptly. I have had a couple delayed shipments, but I generally order around the first part of January so a delay is no issue. The negativity on here surprises me. This is a great company with a great product. The watermelon selection is especially good.. Goldbar yellow squash and Seneca zucchini are top choices for me.. I am thankful Willhite also sells a good selection of southern pea. Zipper Cream and Quickpick are yearly standards

After trying other companies, I ordered from Willhite. The service was great and the seeds were very well packaged. It was great getting the free guide for seed planting. It took me only about 4days to recieve my order, here in S.W. Florida.

Received seeds quickly about 5 days from when I ordered online. Willhite was one of several companies to carry the type of dwarf patio tomato called Small Fry that I need for my climate. Price was good - 100 seeds in packet vs 10, 15 or 20 elsewhere for a few cents more. I'll have to see about germination rate.

Germination rate was good, plants did very well, lots of tomatoes.

I ordered pea and okra seeds for the first time from them last year. I was amazed at the germination rate and quality of the plants that grew. We had a good crop of both even though we had a drought issue. I will order from them again.

I am a market farmer who has been doing business with Willhite for going on 3 years now, & can only say good things about them. They are tops in customer service & product quality. I do not live far from them, & most days, I can place an order in the morning, & pick it up that same afternoon. And their prices can't be beat. In most cases, you can buy enough OP seed to plant an acre for the same price as a couple packets from the local garden center. I always look for seed from them before I check anywhere else.

Just picked up my order from Willhite & I am pleased as always. But just wanted to say that for all you folks trying to call in they are BUSY!!! The phones are ringing off the wall, there are literally thousands of orders stacked up & waiting to be processed & every 5 minutes a local walks in needing $5 worth of seed & $100 worth of gardening advice. Please be patient with them, they are working hard to take care of you. And shame on me for waiting until the last minute to place a seed order! Willhite has good seed & great people.

Ordered some tomato seed, Phoenix Hybrid, online on Sunday. The seeds were in the mail on Monday and I received them by Wednesday. I was given a quick, courteous reply when I emailed a question about the order, as well. Willhite was the only place online I could easily find as a source for the seeds, since they seem to be a newer variety. The price wasn't cheap, but it was lot's cheaper than waiting to buy plants from a nursery.

I've ordered from Willhite many times over the years. They've changed a lot through the years as to their offerings, but I've never had a problem. I'll still order certain things from them. They still offer a wide selection of melon and watermelon seed. Great stuff!

On April 17, 2010 ordered a group of 16 seeds from Wilhite's, received the complete order on April 21st!

I have found the folk's there VERY nice and helpful. And the seeds germinate at great percentages. This is my third year to order from them.

Seems to me that this is a small seed company, in a small Texas town with family employees, who have old time integrity.

They have been friendly on phone and when was missing planting date last fall, rushed my order out the next day.

Give them another try.

This was my first order with the company. I wasn't going to order from them because of the negative ratings they've received, but they offer a fantastic selection of hard-to-find melon seeds, so I decided to chance it. I ordered 6 items on Monday night at 7:00 and 5 of the six arrived in Wednesday's mail--a testament to Wilhite and the Postal Service. They didn't charge me for the unfilled item. The seeds were nicely packaged and generous. Misterbaby.

Excellent order response - I ordered on the web on Saturday, and had the seeds Wednesday. Good selection for the second season planting we need here in south Texas, when many seed companies are only selling their leftovers from the spring. Willhite doesn't carry some of the newest, trendy vegetables, but offers tried and true varieties of such as blackeyed peas, butter beans, and okra.

Purchased seeds both mail order and will call as their facility is very close. Doubled my seed order on 1 item as they considered the germination rate substandard. The seed pkg listed the term also. My seeds were fine. Great source for all kinds of melons.

I have ordered from Willhite Seed for several years and have found them to be very economical seed , yet at the same time a very high quality seed. I especially like their yellow straight neck squash(Goldbar), zucchini(Seneca) and purple hull pea(Quickpick and Mississippi Purple) varieties. Orders are sent promptly and accurately.

I have ordered from Willhite Seeds for close to 15 years. We have been very pleased with the seeds and service. Only one time did they "lose" our order and were very helpful at correcting the problem. We take vegetables to a farmers market so we want good results the first time we plant. We can buy many more seed for the same price a few would cost us elsewhere.

This is my first time ordering from them. My order was correct and sent quickly.
My only complaint: I was sent a pkg of seeds labeled 'substandard'. I called cust serv and was told they will send me another pk of seeds.
When I get those seeds- and if they are good seed- then I will upgrade my rating.

Great variety of seeds! My order was shipped promptly. Contents were clearly labelled. Seeds look good. The information they have available on their site has also come in very handy.

My only gripe is that one item wasn't shipped. I wasn't billed for it, but I wasn't notified or given the opportunity to pick something else either.

On March 24th, 2005, JulieGeek added the following:

A second order wasn't quite as successful. Part of the order arrived late. I had to call to check status on it. The lady on the other end of the phone was friendly and helpful.

The other part of the order arrived even later, but they did ship it Priority Mail at their expense.

All the seeds look great and germination rates are even higher than listed on the packets. Customer service could use to communicate a little more, though.

I will be ordering from them again.

I have purchased watermelon and Muskmelon seed from Willhite since the late 60's when it was the Willhite Melon Seed Company. They still have the best selection of melon varieties in one place of anyone. They are gradually dropping the older varieties and replacing them with hybrids but still have a great selection. In recent years they have extended thier offering of vegetable seeds. Service has always been prompt and courteous.
