|I've had about 10 seed pods on Alexa Kathryn. All of the seeds from her are very small, very hard and very dry. When I say small, they are 70%(appx of course) smaller than what I would call a nice round seed. Average size, not really big. I've had some huge seeds from several other crosses. I just thought the first pods had bad seeds, but I did keep them just to see. Now, that I've harvested all of them, I found them all to be tiny. I wish I could find something ---ah ha, the size of the green smilly face this one is still a little bigger than most of the AK seeds. I have several different daddies on AK as the pod and it didn't change the size at all. |
On the few that I used AK as the daddy, they are normal size. It's just when AK is mom. I'm just wondering is anyone else has noticed this??

|Mona, some seeds will be small and some will be huge. It's usually dip seeds that are really small, but I have had some on tets also. The seeds should be hard but I'm not sure what you are referring to as dry. |
If these are for you and not to sell I'd plant them anyway to see if they germinate.

|Mona, I set some pods on Alexa Kathryn several years ago and all my seeds were as you described - small, very wrinkled and hard. Very different from most daylily seeds. I planted some of them and they germinated, but since I couldn't be sure if they were good, I didn't sell them.|

|Some seeds are just small, Blue Hippo, Maurine Faber and a few others make small seeds for me. As long as they look viable and not squishy (toss those), they are probably fine. My Maureen Faber pods aren't big at all I would day medium size, but they are crammed full of nice viable shiny seeds.|
