Being from the very central United States, finding fresh Thai peppers is a true challenge. I was very excited to see the Thai chili offered here. Started from seed which germinated and took very well even with my novice touch. I grew these in containers, and not only were they beautiful they PRODUCED! Nebraska's weather was all over the map last year, and these withstood the lot of it. They were amazing fresh, and dried! Worth the purchase! Thank you!!!
