I find this truly amazing.? I've not had success with anything under 3 weeks of pollination.? 

Is this evidence that all properties for seed development?are contained in the embryo from fertilization?? Surely, it would not be termed an accident??

Stalk was snapped during microburst (tornadic) winds 5 days after pollination.?
I brought it indoors, laid it on the windowsill where it got a few hours of filtered sun in the morning. It did not rot. Ripened 55 seeds; as soon as the pod started to split, the pod went directly into a loosely closed baggie in the fridge, shelled and burrito'd eventually; in the fridge for 4 months, when seeds started to sprout; one of those sprouts is now above ground.?
I am pretty amazed that a 5 day old "pod" could ripen viable seeds!?
I love going out to look for new little bits of seedling green this time of year!?
