Seeds of "Filipino Mexican Tree Pepper" for sale

This is the perennial (if protected from frost) "Tree Pepper" (Capsicum frustescens) I recently posted a video of here. The heat and flavor are on par with a good Thai pepper. I am asking $3 and a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope for 5 ripe pods that once you've dried indoors a few weeks, will yield a few hundred seeds to sow in the spring if you live in a cold region, now if you garden in a mild winter area. If you have winters harsher than Tampa's, I strongly suggest that you grow them in pots you can place indoors in front of a south window each winter. Just mail your payment and SASE to me at:

John Starnes 3212 West Paxton Avenue Tampa FL 33611.
Thanks and happy gardening! John
