seed saving

kellyannsarkaNovember 1, 2008

hey guys i cut all my ball seeds off last week green or brown and brought them inside in a tray.. let them brown up or cut green ones open...carefull cause the thorns hurt bad... i know...stuck in finger now and they are very thin thornes... dry out on paper towel to get out all the wet stuff.... then i put in season bottles with only the hole tops on them and put in crisper drawer in frig. or give to friends... i see on net they sell the seeds by the ounce... might be an idea!!!!

I'm curious just what ball seeds are. I have never heard of them. There are so many things that make a ball of seeds.

let them brown up or cut green ones open
The green ones that were harvested, may not have been mature seeds, thus may just be brown immature seeds. It would have been best to have let them mature and brown on the plant, depending upon what it was.
