Immature Plumeria Seeds?

Hi I am in a zone 9a so I left 4 pods of seeds on a Cerise plumeria in the greenhouse over the winter. They are big and fat. I touched one of the pods today that had begun to split and it fell off of the plant. Upon opening (was I supposed to do that yet? lol) the seeds look very plump but white. I have ordered and grown seeds before but they never were white. So I'm guessing these seeds are immature? Will they still germinate? Thanks

Sounds immature to me..I have only done my own seed pod once though but have 2 I am letting stay on the tree now till they open on their own....should be brownish in color? Maybe someone else will know...roxanne

RE: Immature Plumeria Seeds?

Hi I will try to get some pics up. The pods were very large and brown and one was already split and just kind of fell apart when I attempted to open it (so opened very easily). The seeds are very plump and look large but they are pure white. The other 3 pods are not split open so I am just going to leave them alone for now. I was just curious if these would sprout.
