SEED SAVING GUIDE

SIMPLICITY  Easy

ANNUAL   Will produce seed in the first year.

POLLINATION   Self-Pollinating. Will not cross with other varieties; however, to avoid minimal natural cross-pollination in older varieties, grow in blocks harvesting centre fruit, or with a tall growing plant between (eg. climbing bean).

TIPS   Remove any plants showing signs of disease. Leave fruit to mature on the bush, then harvest & allow to sit for an extra few days. Cut fruit in half, scoop out seeds and place into a glass jar. Leave pulp to ferment for a few days until the gel surrounding the seeds has dissolved. Place into a sieve & wash well under running water. Leave to dry on a plate or fine mesh in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight. After 1-2 days use hands to separate & break up seeds. Continue to dry.
