    These are from the ones I grew last fall. I just picked the peppers and let them dry with seed intact. Probably 20 or 30 seeds in each dry pepper. Just SASE if anyone can use them. There are varying degrees of heat in Scotch Bonnets and I am not sure which these are. Some are hotter than Habanero. I did not taste these to see how hot they were. That's the reason I let them dry intact. Will send the whole pepper.

    Can we send seeds to other countries ? I have never done that before. Let me check on any restrictions there may be. I would love some different basil seed. I just have the plain Italian sweet basil.

    Liono, you will need to contact your government about the restrictions on seeds/plants being sent into your country. You can contact your government agricultural agency for information.

    Very good, thanks for checking on that. The restrictions are different for each country and the fines can be very expensive so it's always nice to know there will be no problem.

    Do you know how the seeds must be marked in order to enter your country? While these seeds were allowed to dry in the peppers, and were grown in the fall so less likely to have any microbial beasties,,I can not certify that they do not. If the postage is not too much and the restrictions allow I will send the seeds. But please do not send seeds in return. I would rather just give you the seed. I have my garden here and would prefer not to have seeds grown in other countries due to the same problem.
    I will remove the seed from the pepper shell,, I know that is not allowed.
    Please PM me with your mailing address and I will check on postage.

    Thanks mart for your generosity.

    For seed importation, the only thing is that the seeds do net exceed 50 and they must be free from plant material and soil, the seeds can be simply placed in an envelope and sent as a letter.
    When they are from countries like US, Canada or west Europe, they are OK to enter my country, that is due to the strict rules on seeds in such countries.

    I will PM you my postal address.

    Got it ! will send plenty since I have no use for this many and I am not sure of the germination rate. They turn a bright red when ripe but I have no idea how hot they are. So do not take a big bite before checking the heat. They may be anything from mild to burn your socks off but they say the flavor is excellent.
