Peppers 2019

This is a list of peppers that was sent to us in late January by one of our growers. We may decide not to carry all of these and some of these were grown in limited numbers and may already be sold out by the time we get our orders in. Inventory changes on a minute by minute basis in the spring.

we cannot hold vegetable or herb plants.
