    I just read that the seeds from dehydrated peppers can be saved and planted. Has anyone tryed this. It seems to me they would be cooked.

    Since dehydration is not a high temp. and all you are doing is drying and removing moisture, I see no difference from any other method of drying. I think seed producers would not wait days for them to dry naturally and would possibly use a similar method.

    Yes I did do that before and the seeds germinated and it grew like any other pepper plant that I had planted. Errr ... I hope I am talking about the same thing, I am referring to chili, am I?
