I like your optimismistic outlook, but actually those
wide-cross seeds are flatter than they might look. It
doesn't seem like any of them have "meat" inside. I'll
probably give them a try anyway but I don't expect any

Your right, the pods are probably a little greener
than most people would harvest. I was just getting so
impatient. And I've found that once the seeds start to
change color (to brown), I get pretty good germination
anyway. Usually the pod has started to shrivel and
lighten in color at this time.

Most tectorum seeds get a shriveled outer coating for
me, when they dry -- just like a bearded iris seed but
smaller. I sure hope you've got some hybrid seeds
among yours.

Enjoying the discussion [Thanks!] and wishing you all
the best of luck, but especially in your hybridizing
