I can't say that's been my experience. Seeds from hot peppers are hot, and you can tell the difference between jalapeño and reaper by the heat of the seeds for sure, but I don't think the heat even gets close to matching the heat of the pod.

However, the point of tasting the seeds beforehand could still be helpful, assuming that they aren't sterilized or whatever is done to commercial seeds. The hardware store seeds are tasteless.

Most of the heat of a pod comes from the seeds and the placenta

I've just found that reaper seeds, in my experience, haven't been as hot as any part of a fresh reaper. Though, I've only tried that with a couple different supers.

Another lesson besides buying from Ebay, the seeds are not where the heat is found in a pepper.

Heat is not in the seeds but the placenta and other areas...yes a seed may have heat as a result of where it attaches but NOT a true tale of overall heat.
