They keep well in the fridge or in a bucket of sawdust or shredded paper but I doubt they will last long!

It's probably the simplest thing I have ever grown!
we did that when we lived in Spain as well. Also brought some seed pots back from the UK, no problems with doing that as they are certified disease free.

Depends where you eat them I suspect, I doubt there is a grand plan to overload tourists with salt.
