anyone ever heard of territorial seed co?

i am iso ethnic favorite peppers, hot or sweet.
seed savers selection is limited, and i am told that most are hybrids any more.

i am def looking to banking these seeds, so some purity and stability is required.

i got a catalogue from who knows where. they have a good selection.

1. I bought heirloom bean seeds from them

I have saved them each year for several years and get the same beans year after year.

5. cool.

did order some peppers seed. sorta spendy, especially considering the germination you get out of peppers seeds sometimes.
but glad to hear folks recommending them.

6. Territorial Seeds was founded by my favorite gardening author, Steve Solomon

author of Gardening When It Counts, The Intelligent Gardener, and other books. He sold the company a while ago. I would trust them for good germination rates and proper genetics.

I follow Ed Smith's advice and buy seeds from a company in my "region". I shop at Johnnysseeds.com in Maine, Harris Seeds in Rochester, NY, and Stokes Seed in Niagara Falls. Those three stores have germination test results.

The farm market near me has a chili pepper selection by "Kevin Malone the Pepperman". He sells starts and seeds. I used to get his print out of strains. I don't know if he focuses on pure genetics. I just phoned and nobody picked up. I ya really wanna know more, I will pursue it. I might be driving that way later Saturday, I can bang on the door. 440-256-3630 "Rocks"

7. I've ordered from them, though I've never saved the seeds.

No issues with plants grown though.

8. They're a decent company

Haven't tried saving any of their seeds, though.
