Bell pepper excellence!

The pepper arrived in great shape. It was larger than I expected and has since continued its growth with evidence of some blossom formation. What a treat to have fresh bell peppers so soon.

Jump Start Your Garden

We all get too many advertising emails. But the emails I always open are those from Grow Joy. I just love looking at all the different verities including the bell peppers. Each season, months in advance I select the crop to plant and like clockwork, Grow Joy knows the right time to ship. Each shipment is carefully packed and protected. Never have I received damage goods.

Admiral Sweet Pepper

My plant arrived healthy and is getting taller everyday. I pinched off the top to make it grow more bushy, and already have new shoots growing.

Packaged well and received a nice healthy plant. It is growing well and I have 6 or so nice size peppers starting to turn yellow.

Promising peppers

We have grown peppers from Grow Joy before with success. The plants arrived in excellent shape. After a week on the patio table, they were planted and have doubled in size. Hope to enjoy these peppers in our salads soon.

The shipping on the Admiral Sweet Pepper plants was faster than I had expected and the best part was it started flowering immediately! Can't wait to try the pepper. Top notch website.

These are lovely and healthy Admiral Pepper plants. Nice strong stalks and leaves.

From Tara | April 29, 2013

Very Healthy Plants!

We received our plants via UPS one week ago. We planted them the day after they arrived and they look beautiful. Even traveling thru the summer heat in a box, they arrived alive and well. Would not hesitate to purchase more!

Pepper Plant

The Admiral Sweet Pepper plant looks great!

From wolfgang | July 08, 2012


The package arrived super fast, thought i would have a little more time to get some more soil for my garden. I was worried about the pepper plant sitting in its container too long, but it was fine and now its thriving in our garden. I cannot wait to taste some of our very own delicious peppers.

From mindy | July 07, 2012

Sturdy Pepper

Straight out of the shipping carton this plant seemed very sturdy and has stood up to some crazy rain/wind. It's growing nicely and I can't wait til the peppers start appearing.
