Question Re: Cleaning seeds!!!!

I found an easy way to clean seeds you might wanna try. Fill a zip lock half way with warm water and add the seed and massage the bag with your hands and watch the pulp come off. Tip sideways, dump out most of the water, and the pulp should float out. Refill and repeat a few times and you'll be done. My question is, how long should I let em dry before considering them "ready"??
Banana's are a safe addiction. Right?Maybe I need classes.

Default Re: Cleaning seeds!!!!

Hey Nate,
Thanks for the tip... I will have to give it a try. As far as the seeds drying, I personally laid mine out on an old window screen in the garage and let the dry over night. The next day, I gathered them up and placed them into a ziplock bag (open), untill I packed them up for shipment. They seem to be fine, but I would like to hear from others about their experiences...

I let the critters and elements have a go at these . I'm going to try to germinate some to see if this was a good method .
