It looks like the following person has some peppers for sale.
I can't tell if it's seeds or starts.
I'm saving the seeds of my own three varieties of Pepper plants (sweet,
bell and hot) this season.
I should have plenty spare suitable for trade or send an SSAE.
So, what are you doing to insure seed purity?
I've bought a few pepper plants that I can't find seeds for, and I was
thinking of trying to save my own seeds. Peppers cross-pollinate so
easily, though. There is a man on an email list I'm on who has some
excellent suggestions that I'm going to try. He raises a lot of rare
_Capsicum _ species, and has a lot of experience preventing
He suggested using mosquito netting from an Army/Navy surplus store
to put around the branches, then giving the plants a good shake
everyday so that they'll pollinate themselves.

I've done that with heirloom tomatoes and it works. However, one does
tend to get fewer fruits. Then again one only needs a couple for seed.
After you get a several fruits started under the netting you can
remove it and mark the genetically pure fruits with a twist tie
loosely around the stem. That will cut down on heat and mildew
problems caused by the netting.
