Saving Nasturtium Seed

Do I have to wait for the seed to turn brown before I pick them off? All of mine are green. Do I just let them dry out?

Wait for them to turn color. Green in seeds is an indicator that they have not matured all the way.

RE: Saving Nasturtium Seed

My approach to this is totally lazy. Let the plants die back by frost or whatever and a little later go out and collect the seeds off the ground. Some I also push a bit into the ground to self sow. I am not sure if there are losses to critters or whatever but I grow so many I can find enough seeds. Next year these are my suprise nasturtiums because by the time I get the seeds I usually cannot remember what plant they came from.
