Careful when reaching in to harvest seeds from a female plant blossom, as some people can (unknowingly) have an allergic reaction to the blossom. Always wear long sleeves and gloves to avoid an itchy, burning, sensation along your arms. It's very similar to what you experience after laying fiberglass insulation!

It took me only once to learn to protect my skin, my eyes and my breathing. The fibrous materials may be a "varmint" protection mechanism. It really is unpleasant. I always wear gloves and now even eye goggles and a mask when retrieving the seeds.
