RE: The tariff classification of "Chinese pumpkin seed kernels" from China.

Dear Mr. Sunakoda:

In your letter dated September 4, 1990, on behalf of Kasho (USA) Inc., of San Francisco, CA, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The product in question is described as pumpkin seed kernels shelled or unshelled that are de-husked and imported ready for human consumption in raw, uncooked form with no salt, seasoning, flavoring, or additives. They are not roasted, prepared or preserved.

The applicable subheading for these pumpkin seeds will be 1209.91.8080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for seeds, fruits and spores of a kind used for sowing: other: vegetable seeds: other. The rate of duty will be 3.3 cents per kilogram.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
