Dear Friends of the Heat,

I have been on a 1 year search for isot pepper seeds, alas, unsuccessfully; might you know where I might purchase some?

I presently organically mild scoville chilis for conversion into ground pepper as an alternative to added salt in recipes. Would greatly appreciate any assistance or advice.

Thank you,

Ron Backer
