Glad you found the Tabasco seeds! I was getting ready to dig into my stash for you. :-)
I did place an order with HPS this year, because I was out of 'Gypsy' and 'Carmen' (sweet pepper) seeds and wanted enough to split with some local folks. Looks like I'm getting excellent germination from their seeds, as usual.
If you only want a few seeds, it'll probably be cheaper to order from another source, unless you do a group purchase and split packs.
I've been scouring the local nurseries and other box stores for the past 2 weeks looking for Tobasco seeds. I am glad my pepper stash was found. For Tobasco seeds anyway, there didn't seem to be another source, other than mail order.
Now, to clear a small area off of my violet stand to make room for a seed tray . . .
Thanks, Doug, I'd forgotten which company was the HPS "offspring" -- for non-commercial quantities, Totally Tomatoes is the way to go.
Those minimum shipping charges are the kicker with mail order, especially when you just want 1 or 2 packs of seeds and S/H starts at $6 or more (HPS is more). That's why it makes sense to go in with a couple other people on an order. No promises on when the next seed co-op from me will be, though, LOL. :-)
