How soon can you pick the pods? I usually wait unti I see them beginning to split open.

|Teresa - Sounds like you have some good parents for those seeds your plants are producing! That IS exciting!|
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

|Well, I have tried on most of the blooms but some aborted or just didn't take at all. I have a true respect for those that do this all the time.|

seed pods are ripe in about 6 weeks but best to be sure and wait until they start to split. You can pinch the pod and if it cracks open with only a little pressure, the seeds are ripe. We have been harvesting seeds for about a month now. We dry them for a couple of days and refrigerate until we are ready to plant. We are now harvesting 20 or more pods per day.
