Are you going to have any trouble getting your magnificent collection into Belize?
What's that got to do with Jose Andres $10 brussel sprouts?

I only had trouble with citrus relatives in the past at the Belize customs.  They were not importable.  My biggest challenge may come from Malaysia.  The officials who give phyto sanitary permits have expressed some disdain that I would want to remove "their"genetic resources and deprive them of future profits.  (These same guys own rubber and oil palm plantations, enjoy their local sour sops, avocadoes and tamarind and are busy 24-7 cutting down all their forest resources)  Annoying.

Disdain might be a big understatement. According to friend of mine in Kucing, who happens to be a lawyer, exporting seeds from Malaysia is illegal.

That is terrible.
