Everything arrived packaged with care and in a timely manner. My/your corn took root very quickly and has reached 5 feet in just a few weeks. The cantaloupe however, showed slow growth, but growth. Then we got our first heavy rain since I planted and BOOM, it's been growing very well. I'm a regular customer now.

Can hardly wait to eat these,

Arrived safe and securely packaged. Transplanted into grow pots and took awhile for it to fall in love with its new home. It is now vigorously taken off, approximately 4’ tall, and training well up,its cage and trellis. Hope they are super yummy!!!

So Sweet!

This is my second year planting cantaloupe. Last year my two plants produced 8 fruit! Each one was so sweet and juicy! This year I planted 2 more and can't wait to enjoy them!

50/50 on the plants 100 on the Customer Service

When the cantaloupe arrived, one of the plants was in excellent condition and one was in poor. The plant that arrived in excellent condition is doing great! The other died within a few days (planted in the same garden within 3 feet of each other). I contacted Customer Care and Tina Miller was wonderful in securing a credit on my account. She was helpful, followed up with me, and was just wonderful. The plant I purchased to replace the cantaloupe is doing great!

Delicious 51 Cantaloupe

Plants arrived on time and appeared very healthy. I was really pleased and pleasantly surprised at how neatly they were packaged. Time will tell how well the plants produce. Harvest looks promising.

Delicious 51 Cantaloupe

If I reviewed all of the plants I've ordered separately, it would take a good part of the day. I have ordered melons, cucumbers, peppers (hot and sweet), and tomatoes from GrowJoy. I have been buying from them for years. I will continue to buy from them because I get high quality for my money. Packed and shipped well. I've never had a veggie arrive from GrowJoy that didn't grow well. If you are buying veggies, invest your dollars with these folks and you'll be happy with the results.

Delicious 51 Melon plants came in good packaging and were as expected but shipping took almost 2 weeks , would buy from them again.

Awesome convenience!

I am a 1st time gardener in Wisconsin and having the ability to do my research online and order online is the exact convenience I needed. All my cantaloupe plants arrived in awesome condition.
