Spicy and Exceptional

I purchased Habanero Hot Pepper plants, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. First and foremost, the packaging was exceptional. The plants arrived in perfect condition, thanks to the careful packaging, ensuring that they were well-protected during transit. Once I started caring for these plants, I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly they began to thrive. Within a short span of time, they grew vigorously and appeared to be exceptionally healthy. This not only speaks to the quality of the plants but also to the care taken in nurturing them before they were shipped to me. The Habanero Hot Pepper plants have been a fantastic addition to my garden, providing a vibrant and flavorful addition to my culinary adventures. They've produced an abundance of fiery, delicious peppers that have added a punch of heat to my dishes. Overall, I can confidently recommend the Habanero Hot Pepper plants to any gardening enthusiast or food lover. The exceptional packaging, fast growth, and healthy plants make this purchase well worth it. These plants have truly exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to enjoying their spicy harvest for many moons.

Ordered 4 of these due to my seedlings and plants that I bought from a local greenhouse are stunted and not likely to produce. They are beautiful and I swear have doubled in size since they arrived 2 days ago.

Hotter than Hades!

This habanero was a little slow—planted in mid-April and just had its first pepper at the beginning of August—but man, it’s worth it! It has produced about 20 peppers so far and they have a great flavor. No kidding, they are HOT! Wear gloves to handle and chop.

From Linda | June 29, 2018


I was initially impressed to see how these plants came shipped. I waited to write a review until after I transplanted the Habanero Hot Pepper plants, and they started to fruit. I'm amazed by the results! I will be purchasing all of my plants from GrowJoy from now on.

Habanero Hot Pepper Plants

For the first time I ordered all of my pepper plants instead of buying local.The reason is, because nobody here had the "Ghost" pepper plants and they did, so I bought them all from them. Nice people, all plants came in excellent shape just as if I had gotten them from them that day. I wish I could remember the lady's name that took my order and helped me out because she was so nice. Thanks again.

Last year there was a mix up in my order and I accidently got this pepper plant. I added it to my salsa and very much liked the different flavor it added so will use it from now on.
