Pepper Seeds from Taiwan Long Hot Peppers from David

~
A good friend of mine, David, gave me some long hot peppers native to Taiwan
a few years ago and I have been re-harvesting the seeds for the next years crop.
Here is the process of acquiring the seeds.
Additionally, I also make red pepper flakes from the dried pepper skins!!!
Hot Stuff!!! Great on many dinner options!!!

Pepper Seed Planting Album March 13th, 2010 is here --->
