DRIED PEPPER FLAKES from Peru and Mexico. When we extract the seeds for planting from dried peppers, we produce the flakes that are ready for cooking, and have listed below what is available in five-ounce packages (about one quart). Flakes keep best when refrigerated.

Heat levels (HS) are our Dremann Hotness Scale--to convert to Scovilles, multiply by 12. Aji is a Capsicum baccatum imported from Peru, and the rest are Capsicum annuum imported from the growers in Mexico.

PRICES - Shipped Free to USA customers $10 for the first package, and $5 for each additional.

TEPIN FLAKES are the exception to those prices, Shipped Free to USA customers at $25 per package.
