Cucumber melon (barese) seed saving question
Hope everyone has had a fantastic gardening season. I have been growing the Cucumber Barese (Italian Melon Cucumber) for a few years and absolutely love the cuke/melon. The folks over at Seeds of Italy no longer carry the particular variety I grow. I planed to let one of the fruits stay on the vine until it is really ripe - and then pick for seed saving - but I put the specimen in the fridge. Will it be OK to save seed from this melon/cuke that has been refrigerated?? This particular type of cucumber is really a melon. BTW should I do the float technique or just look for nice fat seeds and pick them out, clean and dry??
