seeds from an Austen?

I am wondering if my friend's Sharifa Asma may have hips on it and if so could I pick them now and they will grow? I am thinking they will have had some cold winter temps by now.Or is it too late? Of course they will have cross-pollinated with heaven-knows what...
But if I can just get the Sharifa Asma scent I will be happy.

Temperatures below 25 deg F supposedly damages seeds,
but you should try anyway. A well-draining medium is essential: use a 1:1 mix of seed starter and perlite.
After planting your seeds, keep pots in cool dark place (like a basement) until you hopefully get germination.
