You Want To Know About Peppers?

We’re industry experts - there’s no doubt about that. Our very own Smokin’ Ed created the hottest pepper in the world, the Smokin' Ed's Carolina Reaper®. And that doesn't even begin to touch on our expertise. At our farms, we now grow over 100 varieties of peppers and harvest over 100,000 plants each year. If you want to grow peppers - we know how.

Do you sell Pepper X seeds?

I'm sorry, but we do not sell Pepper X seeds. Pepper X is a patented variety, and it is not available for purchase or use by the general public. This variety was developed and patented by its creators, Ed Currie and the PuckerButt Pepper Company. As a patented pepper, its seeds and plants are protected by intellectual property rights, and the sale or distribution of Pepper X seeds without proper authorization would be in violation of those rights.
