Chili Pequin and Tepin

Hello,

Two chili-related questions:

• Is there a difference between the pequin and tepin chilies? They’re both extremely hot and small. (Also, sometimes it’s spelled “chiltepin.”)

Pictures of these chilies:

• Is there a good source to order seeds for either or both types of chili peppers? It would be nice to grow some this summer.

If you’re not familiar with these peppers, they are astonishingly utterly spectacularly good. And they’re hot too.

Thanks!
