starting seeds from frozen pods
I googled around about this, but found very little info.
In nature pods fall to the ground, freeze in winter, thaw in the spring and some of the seeds germinate to reproduce. I've had several springtime "volunteer" tomato plants that grew from fallen fruit at the end of the season.
So, as an experiment today I took a Bhut from the freezer, thawed it out and removed the seeds. I placed a few into moistened starter mix on the heat mat and left the rest out to dry. I plan to try to start the dry seeds in about a week or so.
Anyone here tried this before? Results?
