Hot Pepper Seeds

If you're looking for hot pepper seeds, green chile seeds or so-hot-it-will-give-you-hiccups super hot peppers, you've come to the right place.

Sandia Seed came to be because we wanted to offer a better variety of pepper seeds to the home gardener. We found that a lot of the New Mexican green chile varieties were not easy to come by for gardeners, so we decided to work with New Mexican farmers to bring their heirloom green chiles and peppers to the home gardeners and urban gardeners of the world.

So are you looking for hot pepper seeds?
Check out our lists below:

The Trinidad Moruga Scorpion is the hottest pepper!
