Spur chilis are a common ingredient in many Thai dishes but are not widely available where I live. Even the seeds dont seem common online. I was happy to find them available at Plants with a Purpose and I found the ordering and shipping process quick and easy. One week after planting 11 out of the 20 seeds have germinated. Peppers can be stubborn to germinate (looking at you Aji Charapita!) so I am not too concerned. Either way I will have more than enough for lots of Pad Gaprao!
