Originating from a rich heritage of gardening excellence, the Whopper seeds were introduced to offer gardeners fruits that are not only larger in size but also superior in taste. Drawing from a century of expertise, the development of Whopper seeds has been a journey of passion, devoted to enhancing the gardening experience for beginners and seasoned growers that was 100 years in the making.

Whether it's the robust taste of the tomatoes or the juicy sweetness of the peppers, Whopper seeds ensure a bountiful harvest of delicious produce – and flowers, too.

The Whopper line now extends beyond the originals, including Junior Whopper seeds in which the improvements are not so much focused on size of the fruit, but the incredible taste and quantity of fruit that is produced on the vines.
