Trade Winds Fruit is a great and well-priced source of seeds, I've found. Their variety and shipping charges are quite reasonable, and I've had good success with their germination, also. http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/scotc...ican-red-seeds

If you want to save yourself some work, time, and money, Hirt's Gardens on Ridge Road in Wadsworth sells both red and yellow Scotch Bonnet seedlings for 4/$1.99. They should be getting them in in another month or so. You could always call them, too. Wouldn't be a far drive for you, and their selection is huge especially for peppers. https://hirts.com/jamaican-hot-red-s...4-live-plants/

They don't get great reviews for shipped plants, but when you're buying them in person you get to pick, and their onsite prices are way better than what they advertise online.
I usually get my SunSugar tomato seedlings from them. Cheaper than buying the seeds and doing it myself.

I recently bought some White Fatalii seeds at whitehotpeppers.com As a bonus, they sent me some Fatalii x Scotch Bonnet cross seeds. I'm gonna try to grow them out this season, and with any luck, I'll have seeds to share next year. If you're interested....

Thanks Jon,let me know how they do.I found a Hot Jamaican Red that is close to the Scotch Bonnet.It's supposed to be a Heirloom pepper and at 70 days an early one.Heat at 100000 to 200000.Thin walled squash type.Local nursery had them from Lake Valley seed company.I started seeds yesterday.I can seed you some in return.

@ cjp...

I will hopefully get them started this week. I'm still trying to figure out where they're gonna fit into my garden. The pepper side of things is pretty crowded this year!

That's my problem every year.I need to make it larger but I do no till and it takes a few years to get the ground where I like it.

Have not been there yet this year.My sweet peppers are not up yet and am thinking of getting some fresh seeds with a early type.Might look for Corno Di Toro Rosso.The Nardello seeds are a few years old as are the Cubanella.I'll start a small tray of them if I can find them this morning.

Red Scotch Bonnet makes a really nice powder.

After looking at 4 different places this morning looking for Corno Di Toro Rosso,I found a Sweet Pepper blend of 50% Corno Di Toro(bull horn)and 50% Sweet Banana pepper mix.The problem with this is that they are loose seeds in the pack and I don't know what I'll get.I put three seeds per cell and did 9 cells.The other problem is it's from Burpees.I think they are over priced but these where only $1.99 at Home Depot and since I could not find them anywhere else and wanted to plant them today I took the chance.Don't know anything about their Sweet Banana peppers other than it's supposed to be a sweet pepper.Anyone try these?Please let me know how they did.Thanks.

Try Tradewind Fruits: http://http://www.tradewindsfruit.co...o-pepper-seeds

They have Corno di Toro Red AND also Corno di Toro Orange (which are awesomely better than the yellow version.) $2.00/pk.

Also, I know for certain that Hirt's has offered both the Red and the Yellows in 4-paks for $1.99 each of the past several years, if you want to buy the starts from them instead of seeds.

I can check if I have any extra seeds if you'd like. I know I do have one called Corno di Capra that I got last year from Tradewinds but never grew. They're supposed to pack a little heat but otherwise same as the Corno di Toro Red (Rosso).

Don't feel like you're stuck.

I called Hirt's this morning and they are not open on Saturday,I bought and planted those seeds today and just sent Burpees an e-mail telling them how disappointed I am that they were loose and I would not purchase any more seeds in the future from them.I really wanted to get them planted asap that's why I took the chance.Last year my pepper plants did not grow well as I did not have a heat mat until this year.My nardello and cubenello seeds are a few years old,maybe that why they are slow to germinate.Thank you for the offer but I really don't want any heat as they are for my daughter's and grandchildren.Both daughter's like to roast them.But thank you again as it's a very kind offer. Take care.Carl.

Burpees is WAY overpriced. I bought them because I can't get them anywhere else and we like them... 4th of July. there is not another like it that I have found. I got them at TSC and they were market 4.19 a packet -25% and rang up at 3.19... still way over priced but I didn't pay shipping and I will have them for next year.
