lettuce seed color
Today I collected seed from some lettuce. The plants had around half the flowers "fluffed". I shook the plants into a tub and whacked them a bit with a big spoon. The seeds that came out were both brown and white.
A few days ago I harvested seed from a lettuce plant that had completely dried up and those seeds were mostly green.
These are all the same variety of lettuce. Any ideas on why the seed is different colors ? I am guessing it has to do with viability, that makes me wonder how to get higher percent of good seed, whichever that one is.
Thanks, Jean in Mt
