Malabar Spinach

Do I need to let the seeds dry on the vine?
I have quite a few black seeds now, but they look like ripe berries full of juice.

Hi Ruth,
There is a seed in the middle of each berry. In my Seed to Seed book. it is recommended to put the seed in a fine mesh strainer and rub against the sides under running water to remove the outer berry part. The put on paper towels on plate to dry complete.

Thanks for the info remy.
Maybe this will help others with the same question.
Yesterday I wore gloves and rubbed each berry as hard as I could between my fingers as I picked them.
I put them in a colander and ran water over to get as much color out as possible, then put on paper towels to dry.
They actually dried a lot overnight and today I separated more of the pulp from the seeds.
Overall it was pretty easy.
