Pepper & Eggplant Supports is rated out of 5 by 6.Rated 1 out of 5 by FarmerMary from NOT Good for Eggplants Though the catalog describes them as 30" high, once they are pushed into the ground, they end up being only 21" high, not nearly high enough to support robust eggplants heavy with fruit. My eggplants (great Burpee transplants) are extremely robust - they are easily five feet tall or more and the weight of 18-20 oz. fruits had pulled the long branches almost to the ground and blocked the path between beds. Even most of my peppers are too tall for these, except for the "Tangerine Dream", which is a bush-type, 18" pepper plant. Since I bought 2 sets of these, don't know what else I could use them with. The only good thing I can say about them is they are very well constructed. Will not recommend them.Date published: 2015-08-27Rated 2 out of 5 by LBG05 from Disappointing I opened my box of these today only to find that 2 of the 3 supports were broken, the welds were apparently not very strong. Given the reviews talking up the quality, I can only guess that they have changed things. I also agree an instruction sheet, either included or online, would be helpful...for example, how close to the plant should it be staked, are there any other considerations??? Burpee is sending me a replacement, so 5 stars for their customer service. We'll see how the next batch arrives...Date published: 2015-06-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorado from Quality cage These are quality welded cages that don't break or bend. I have had them for 4 years and they will give me many more years. I use them for peppers, eggplants and small patio tomatoes. I also have the tomato supports. Don't be put off by the price. I used to use cheap tomato cages for peppers and eggplants. I have no idea how many I have thrown out because they were totally misshapened or had broken welds. You won't regret buying these.Date published: 2014-11-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Nathan from Perfection I am very glad i bought these and they are worth the money. I have these placed in two EarthBoxes for my Bell Pepper plants and also in my raised garden bed, and they are STURDY, the welds seem solid, no issues with rain or sun, these are perfect.Date published: 2013-07-12Rated 5 out of 5 by jeannej from Pepper and Eggplant Supports These galvanized wire cages are better than described. I thought they were stainless steel when I took them out of the well packaged box. They have prongs to insert the cage into the soil and stayed put thru wind and rain. Great support for the peppers and will definitely last a lifetime . Nothing here in our neighborhood came close in quality and value .Date published: 2013-03-17Rated 4 out of 5 by cuddles from Pepper Was disappointed since no instruction how to use...we are new gardners. An instruction sheet would be helpful Can this be used with established plants? Thank you. They do seem nice and sturdy.Date published: 2011-04-08
